Drinkers Live Longer

Drinking a little alcohol helps people live longer, Danish researchers reported Friday.

The report, written by experts at the University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen Municipal Hospital, confirmed earlier findings that moderate alcohol intake can be beneficial.

Experts studied 13,000 people aged 30 to 79, analyzing their alcohol intake. "The lowest risk was observed at one to six alcoholic beverages a week," they wrote in the British Medical Journal.
