I know a lot of people would dearly love to believe this one, and hope that further research would prove this one true.
According to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, drinking alcohol does more to extend your life beyond 90 than exercise.
It is strange, because I keep hearing certain things like this that, frankly, sound a bit too good to be true. Things like red wine being actually beneficial to one's health, even though it also seems like for every such story on research that suggests this, there is another story with other research that suggests exactly the opposite. Sometimes, I hear the same thing with beer, and also with chocolate, another favorite food item that people love to indulge in, and which some research suggests is good for you, or for your heart, while other research would seem to refute this notion.
Personally, of course, I do not know. I cannot verify it with any research of my own, not qualifying as a scientist myself. Also, as far as this particular story is concerned, I am not even close to the age of 90 just yet, and so cannot pretend to give anyone advice on how to reach it.
Still, it seemed like something worth sharing, because it was interesting, and perhaps even could make someone's day.
So, with that said, here is an article on the latest research which suggests indeed that consuming alcohol will help you live beyond 90 years old:
Drinking alcohol more important than exercise for living past 90, study says by Joe Dziemianowicz New York Daily News, February 20, 2018:
