Wine Study Reveals Daily Half of Glass Will Boost Life Expectancy

I’m sure this “study” will come as quite a subdued shocker to many of you who already knew that Red Wine and Cardiovascular health were intermingled in one way, shape or form. My father is definitely one of those people, but now, when people ask him and individuals like him about why he drinks half a glass of red wine a day, he now has a study to point to. From a research in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, using a case of 1,373 randomly selected men over the course of 40 years, have revealed that of the group, those men who only drank wine (and less than half a glass of it a day), “lived around 2.5 years longer than those who drank beer and spirits, and almost five years longer than those who drank no alcohol at all” (physorg.com). For those who are in high spirits, remember with any substance, moderation is key! Without further ado, who’s down for some Sangria?!
