ALCOHOL ASSOCIATED WITH LONGEVITY

Another major medical research study has found greater longevity among men who drink moderately than among those who either abstain or drink heavily.

The study, which carefully examined the 89,299 men in the Physicians' Health Study over a period of five and one-half years confirms the findings of other research in the United States as well as many countries around the world: those who drink alcohol in moderation tend to live longer than those who either abstain or drink heavily.
