During a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science a study was presented that shows how moderate drinking can lead to longer life.

A team from University of California has been studying people who live until their 90s since 2003. They asked about the people's dietary habits, medical history as well as their other daily habits. After surveying 1700 people between ages 90 and 99, the results seem to suggest that drinking two glasses of beer or wine every day decreased the risk of dying prematurely by 18 percent.

The study team leader, Neurologist Claudia Kawas, said that "I have no explanation for it, but I do firmly believe that modest drinking improves longevity."

The results of the study obviously don't show any causation, but there obviously seems to be some kind of link between drinking an longevity.
