Dr. Kawas and her team of doctors and professors analyzed data from a long term study conducted at the UC Irvines Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders. They dubbed this study the 90+ Study which has been following people over the age of 90 since 2003.
The research covered everything from daily exercise to sleep schedule to diet.
As a result, the researches concluded that people who drank two glasses of wine or beer per day saw an 18% drop in their risk of early death. On the other hand, those who exercised 15-45 minutes per day only saw a 11% drop. In other words, drinking alcohol is better for you than exercise for longevity of life.

I dreamed this once :)
But how many of them were picking their nose?
So that explains Keith Richards.
Wonder what a couple shots of good whisky once a week would do?
Why I love Free Republic.
Well, of course a site called ‘grownmenstuff.com’ is going to come to this conclusion.
Winston Churchill always had a cigar in his mouth, and was also a drinker, and lived to be 90.
How can death at over 90 years of age be considered early death?
OK, I’ll drink to this!
Make mine a DIPA!
The trick is to stop at two drinks. People who have the genetics or the psychological predisposition to alcoholism can’t stop.
Statistics say that the average person has 9 alcoholic beverages a week ... it’s good to know that I’m above average
You _can_ do both!
Its earlier than 100?
Ok, we have established that we want to drink a bit, and that it alone is better than exercise. But what if you do both? The study says both extend life.
To me 9 drinks a week is borderline alcoholic. It is more than your daily night hood which is entry-level alcoholism as well.
This is true because I want it to be true. If that’s scientific rigor enough for climate science, it’s plenty for beer.
