According to studies, drinking a couple of glasses of beer or wine a night could actually help you live longer, as long as you’re drinking moderately and sticking to the recommended daily limits.
Researchers examined the lives of people who lived passed the age of 90 and found that there were 5 factors linked to longer life including modest consumption of alcohol.
Researchers found that people who had consumed 2 glasses of beer or wine every day had a 18 per cent reduced risk of premature death compared to people who didn’t drink at all.
The study included 1700 people who were in their 90s by 2003.
So if you want to live longer, reach for that glass of wine or beer.
