Drinking Booze a Better Way to Live to 90 Than Exercise - BEST Study Ever


Want to live to be 90? We'll drink to that! A new study says that consuming a moderate amount of alcohol every day may be the secret to a long life. 

Analyzing more than 1,600 nonagenarians, University of California researchers found that people who drank two glasses of beer or wine daily increased their odds of living past 90 by 18 percent over those who abstained from alcohol. That's an even better success rate than engaging in 15 to 45 minutes of daily physical activity, which reduced risk of death before 90 by 11 percent. 

"I have no explanation for it, but I do firmly believe that modest drinking improves longevity," researcher Claudia Kawas said in a recent conference address. She added that gaining a few pounds in old age may be the key. "It's not bad to be skinny when you're young," she explained. "It's very bad to be skinny when you're old."
