Drink a Little Wine, Live a Little Longer

Who doesn’t love the Dutch?!?  A recent Dutch researcher’s report noted that men who regularly drink up to half a glass of wine a day live about 5 years longer than those who don’t.

Does this mean that if we drink 2 glasses a day we live 20 years longer?  I’m just saying, half a glass of wine ain’t much…

Hey, with all this swine flu talk, I thought a report with its increased life talk could cheer a few folks up.


Seriously though, what is the big deal here?  Just another report claiming health benefits for wine drinkers.  Well,this study apparently lasted a whopping 40 years (from 1960 to 2000) with regular follow up of those being studied.

I know, there will be a new study out tomorrow claiming the opposite.  But hey, can’t a wine drinker feel good about his imbibing for just one day?!

Happy WEEKEND wine tasting!
