Drink beer, live longer

A recent study (published in JECH) shows that regular drinking of small amounts (half a glass) of beer or wine prolongs our lives. Wine outranks beer in this field adding 5 more years while beer gives just 2,5 extra years to our lifetime. Apparently moderate drinking (the key word moderate) lowers risk of heart disease.

This is a first study to give superiority to one alcohol over the other.

Well, you know what I say. Have a beer, save the economy. Now you get a bonus and live 2,5 years longer. Cool, right?
