Drinking Alcohol Is Better Than Exercise For Living a Longer Life, According to Recent Studies
It’s very hard to most of the people to get used to the idea that alcohol, actually, can be very useful for our health. It is true that overconsuming of alcohol leads to addiction and much worse physical and mental disorders. However, the normal consumption of alcoholic drinks could actually make us live longer, says one of the latest scientific studies on this topic.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual conference is where this research was presented. The individual behind these findings is neurologist Claudia Kawas, who states that drinking two glasses of beer or wine a day can reduce the risk of premature death. In fact, she adds that it has even better statistics than those who exercise on a daily basis.
They worked hard to prove this conclusion, so Kawas and her team of colleagues took data from a serious study conducted at the UC Irvine’s Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders. The study involved individuals who lived to be historic landmarks since 2003, mostly elderly people. They wanted to see which lifestyle makes people live longer, what’s the most successful way to do it.
After her team analyzed the data from the study, they concluded that individuals who consumed two glasses of wine or beer per day reduced their risk of an early death by an astonishing 18%. To compare that statement, individuals who exercised between 15 to 45 minutes per day cut the exact same risk, but only by 11%.
Believe it or not, the risks of cardiovascular diseases are reduced by 25-30% just by drinking alcohol. There are other useful contributions for the body, it’s also a good antiseptic.
However, be always aware that you must drink with full responsibility and seriousness. Never drive when you drink and always enjoy drinking, do it with passion.
