The number one priority for an individual is being healthy and living longer. We must take care of our minds and body because it makes up who we are. Without great health, that means no longevity. In today's society, everyone wants to live longer. Mental health is just as important in many respects.

With all the horrible news that has been going on recently in the world, a highlight is that a recent study points out that drinking wine or beer every day is actually good for an individuals health and for living longer. Alcohol is usually tied to being a detrimental drink that destroys the body, so it is surprising to see that it's a good thing.

There long has been skepticism whether drinking is good or bad for an individual's lifelong health. The possibility of it being good in some ways has been discussed for a long time.

The study

Multiple outlets have confirmed the report and an article via IndyStar, written by Brian Manzullo, gives details on the observation. The study was conducted at the University Of California, where it was stated that "consumption of moderate amounts of alcohol and coffee is linked to living a longer life." However, this means only a couple of glasses of wine or a couple cans of beer, nothing more. The article states that the daily use of beer or wine can help people live past 90 years old.

Unfortunately, people abuse alcohol and doing that, in turn, ruins an individuals life.

Only moderate consumption is good for a person. The study gives the underlying benefits of drinking beer or wine per day. It says, "The research found that subjects who drank two glasses of beer or wine every day decreased their chances at a premature death by 18 percent, and those who drank two cups of coffee a day decreased their chances by 10 percent." So either beer or wine or coffee works to give an individual less of a chance of death.

Another drink helps too

The study also found that regular coffee consumption is key to living a long life too. And it is well known that many people across the world drink coffee. Tea is also popular and some individuals prefer tea over coffee. Coffee is used to wake up in the mornings, but it is also good for a person's health.

It equally has been found to help prevent some types of cancer from occurring.

Other elements

But drinking beer or wine is not going to save a person. An individual still has to eat right and exercise. Exercising, in turn, releases stress and it is rewarding to see a transformation of the body. Exercising helps many individuals not put weight back that is lost and keeps an individual slim.

A good mind and body take a lot of elements, one is not enough. Stress is also a factor, as it ages an individual. Finding a good hobby can also help for enjoying life and being happy.

So the combination of drinking moderately, exercising, and relaxing are keys to a long lasting life. It is good to hear that the daily use of beer or wine can be good. Alcohol has been added to the list until other information arises, so sit down, relax, and have a glass of beer or wine!
