Longevity Tip: 4 of 5 To Go Beyond 90

Tip 4: Keep Alcohol Intake in Check

In this study, . . . those who drank the least seemed to live the longest. Alcohol and longevity is a difficult question to answer.  . . . Some studies that claim moderate alcohol consumption has life-extending properties.  However, other studies claim this research is bogus because they didn’t account for the abstainer bias. . . . The American Institute for cancer research claims that there is no safe level of alcohol that can be consumed.  Even for the heart condition, atrial fibrillation, studies also show that there is no safe level of alcohol. If you chose to drink, my advice would be to look for the minimally effective dose that you need.  If your BMI runs high, minimizing alcohol intake will help you to optimize your weight as alcohol packs a big sugar punch.
