Beer and Martinis May Help You Live Longer, New Study Suggests

Martini glass for Happy Hour Week.jpg
​Wine snobs who gush over the beverage's life-extending properties may be stunned at this news nugget. A new study suggests that beer, martinis, and possibly all alcoholic drinks have the same effect.   

An analysis in The Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs found that there may be health benefits for older moderate drinkers no matter what type of alcohol they consume. Wine may have previously appeared to be better at extending life only because those who drink it are generally in better health, the New York Times explains. Researchers studied 802 men and women ages 55 to 65 for 20 years. 

Of course, lead author Charles Holahan told the Times, "The study does not encourage initiating wine consumption as a pathway to better health."

Still, it's not a bad thing to hear just before New Year's Eve.
