I'm not vetting their conclusions, merely affirming I saw the study
You saw "the study" and referred to it as "new study out" which makes it
hard to refute. If we could see the details of the study, we might be
to prove it was biased BS.
Meanwhile, I vaguely remember seeing a study proving that the health
benefits of moderate drinking come from the antioxidants in the booze, and
that you can get the same benefits by drinking other stuff such as red
grape juice or cranberry juice or whatever. But does my study have any
more credibility than yours?
It's not speculating on cause. It merely looked at three classes of people,
and non-drinkers lived shorter than moderate drinkers, who lived longest,
and heavy drinkers, who died sooner.
Intuitively, small amounts of booze, if they don't lead to extreme amounts
of booze, probably help with stress.
Lemme look for the article
This isn't it, but it's about the same study
he benefits of drinking alcohol may go beyond the jollies of inebriation
and, in fact, help you live longer than non-drinkers, Time.com reported.
While the reasons aren't yet clear to the research team who conducted the
study, they found that abstaining from alcohol can actually increase the
risk of dying.
In the 20-year study of 1,824 individuals between the ages of 55 and 65 - 63
percent were men - who had some kind of outpatient care in the previous
three years, researchers found that non-drinkers had the highest mortality
rate at 69 percent, followed by heavy drinkers at 61 percent and moderate
drinkers at 41 percent - moderate alcohol consumption is defined as
one-to-three drinks a day.
The study, led by Charles Holahan, psychologist at the University of Texas
at Austin, controlled for socioeconomic status, level of physical activity,
number of close friends, quality of social support, as well as non-drinkers
who had health issues related to past heavy drinking.
Several studies have suggested moderate drinking improves heart health,
circulation and sociability, especially red wine. Although heavy drinking is
associated with higher risk of disease, including cancer, it also is
believed to increase social interaction, which Time.com reported is vital
for mental and physical health. This, consequently, makes them less likely
to die than non-drinkers, who are more likely to suffer depression.
