Drinking Alcohol Prolongs Life –Researchers

Researchers report that a long-term survey found moderate coffee consumption, not being obese, moderate exercise – and a drink or two of alcohol – were common among participants living past age 90.

Here’s some information to ponder while hitting the gym instead of a bar: Beer and wine have better health benefits than exercise in terms of longevity.

Those are the findings of University of California neurologist Claudia Kawas and other researchers conducting the 90+ Study, an effort that started in 2003 to explore impacts of daily habits on longevity.


In the 1,700-person survey, people who drank about two glasses of beer or wine per day were 18 percent less likely to experience a premature death than those who abstain — but participants who exercised 15 to 45 minutes a day cut the same risk by 11 percent.
