Want to Live a Long Life? Try Drinking More Booze
It seems that every other month or so, we hear about new ways to improve our longevity. Well, I have to say that this latest intensive research project is something that I think most people would be into in order to live a longer life.
According to a massive new study by a neurologist named Claudia Kawas at the University of California, the key to living a long life is ALCOHOL.Yup, apparently, if you want to live a long life, put down those dumbbells, take off those running shoes, and start doing something that's actually good for you — getting blasted on boxed wine.
The study was conducted on more than 1,700 people over 90-years-old for the past 15 years, and found that people who drank around two glasses of beer or wine a day were 18% less likely to die early.
According to dailynews.com, researchers discovered that subjects who drank about two glasses of beer or wine a day were 18% less likely to experience a premature death over those who abstained from alcohol. Meanwhile, participants who exercised 15 to 45 minutes a day, cut the same risk by 11%, which means you're 7% less likely to live longer than by just drinking.
Further study is needed to determine how habits impact longevity beyond people’s genetic makeups, so in the meantime, have a beer or a glass of wine — or both.
