Against popular beliefs, a new set of studies has revealed that the people who consume alcohol are at a lesser risk of dying early.
The study, conducted on 1824 participants, showed that around 69 percent of the non-drinkers died premature deaths while only 41 percent of the moderate drinkers suffered this faith. The heavy drinkers showed 60 percent death rate, still nine percent less than the ones that do not drink.
If this was not enough, it was also proven that Alcohol is great when it comes to increasing sociability. Drinking the same moderately on social occasions are proven to be good for the health and could enhance the mood.
The interesting part is the rise of percent between the moderate drinkers and the heavy drinkers. We see a 19 percent rise in the death rate between these categories and that is where one should draw the line.
Another set of studies has proven that staying off alcohol for one month could lower blood pressure and blood sugar.
So in case you are still scratching your head regarding the conclusion of all these then here goes: Drinking alcohol is good for health as long as the level of consumption is kept to a moderate level.
