Drinking To Your Health – Literally

Time to toss a few back! Why? Because it’s good for you!

New research shows  moderate drinkers have lower mortality rates than tea totalers.

The study conducted by psychologist Charles Holahan of the University of Texas at Austin had 1,824 participants between ages 55 and 65 who were looked at over a 20-year time frame and took into account a wide number of variables, including socioeconomic status and level of physical activity.

The results?  For drinkers mortality rates were lower than for those who had never drank alcohol. Slightly lower for heavy drinkers, and lowest for moderate drinkers who enjoyed one to three drinks per day.

Researchers were amazed that despite drinkers having an increased risks for cirrhosis, accidents and other issues associated with excessive drinking, the study found 60 percent of heavy drinkers died prematurely compared to 69 percent of the nondrinkers.  Just 41 percent of the moderate drinkers died prematurely.
