New studies suggest that those who drink moderately throughout their lives live longer than those who do not drink at all. In fact even heavy drinkers outlive teetotallers! Before you hurry to bring out that bottle, note by moderate drinking, we mean 1 to 3 drinks a day.
In a study conducted over a period of 20 years, it was found that 69% of non-drinkers died, where as 60% of the heavy drinkers died and only 41% of the moderate drinkers There may be other factors involved but according to statistics those who drank out lived those who didn’t.
Another study at the University of Athens found that caffine actually helps in warding off heart diseases. So, having your morning cup of coffee can actually keep you healthy!
So looks like all those drinks that we thought would be unhealthy practices might actually help our health. But more research is required to back it up before you start sitting with your evening pegs drinking to your fine health!
