Going For Booze

Study reveals old aged folk who get fat and enjoy a tipple or two tend to live longer

 

On Wednesday in society magazine Town & Country, Sam Dangremond revealed that “drinking alcohol could be the key to living past 90.”

 

Quoting The 90+ Study, “one of the largest studies of the oldest-old in the world” and something that encompasses some 1,600 people aged over 90 years old, Dangremond remarked: “It turns out an extra beer or glass of wine might actually help you live a longer life.”

 

In summary, the study found that nonagenarians consuming “two glasses of beer or wine a day improved their odds of living longer than those who did not, by about 18%.” Interestingly also, overweight (but not obese people) in their 70s live longer than normal or underweight people, the study also found.

 

Of the results, Dr Claudia Kawas, a neurology specialist at the University of California, commented:

 

“I have no explanation for it, but I do firmly believe that modest drinking improves longevity.”

 

“It’s not bad to be skinny when you’re young, but it’s very bad to be skinny when you’re old.”

 

We say: “A most definite hearty cheers to that.”
