Bottoms up! Heavy drinkers are MORE likely to live to the age of 85 without dementia, according to major 30-year study


A 30-year study by the University of California, San Diego has concluded that over-65s who indulge in up to three alcoholic drinks a day can look forward to a happy and healthy retirement.
In fact, they said, moderate to heavy drinkers are more likely to live to the age of 85 without dementia or other cognitive impairments than non-drinkers.

This is something that a few weeks ago until my setback I actually contemplated with some people.

A few weeks ago we once again heard that coffee reduces negatives in one by so many percent. We always hear that wine and chocolate do the same along with other products. Of course there is the exercise component, just 15 minutes a day they claim, or giving a short nap, and on and on it goes.

My thought that day were, well if one did everything that would improve/reduce your odds by 5% or so you would end up at 100%, basically living forever.....

Liver disease.. fella I knew pickled himself to death, they found him dead and fermenting in his bed.

I used to be a heavy drinker, but after a few visits to the hospital, puking blood and the doctor saying I had peptic ulcer and another drink would probably kill me.. I quickly gave it up.

So non-drinker (now), never smoked, never did drugs.. clean living

Friend was drunk, leaned out the passenger side of truck to grab his hat that fell off. Landed on his head and neck and died instantly.

Friend had a few drinks in her new hot tub, relaxing...fell asleep and drowned.

Random, for sure. Booze is dangerous stuff for sure.

Hard to believe since alcohol is way more addictive than pot.

I think you really would have to be drunk to believe anything on the source you provided.

You provide a list of sources that you have confidence in and we'll be sure not to insult your delicate tastes in what you consider proper reliable information.

Interesting, I ddidn't know that. What I do know is that while alcohol is one of the less addictive drugs, it's still addictive and cutting cold turkey can kill a heavy drinker.

Inversely, though heroin is among the most addictive, while quitting cold turkey can drag user through a living hell of withdrawal, quitting cold turkey won't kill even a heavy user... it'll just make him wish he were dead until he gets over the symptoms I suppose.

I wouldn't call 3 drinks a day 'heavy drinking'. But its been well known for decades, and in popular culture for centuries, that moderate use of alcohol helps digestion, keeps arteries clearer, and likely keeps your spirits up.. all of which can lead to a longer life.

The three drinks per day should not be served in buckets of course.
