For Women, One Drink a Day Leads to Healthy Aging

For middle-aged women, havingِ one alcoholic drink a day — asِ opposed toِ notِ drinking atِ allِ or havingِ two orِ moreِ drinks — mayِ improve health andِ pave theِ way toِ a long life, a newِ study shows.
These data suggest thatِ regular, moderate consumption ofِ alcohol atِ midlife mayِ beِ related toِ a modest increase inِ overall health status among women whoِ survive toِ older ages, theِ study said.
Researchers fromِ the Harvard School ofِ Public Health andِ the Brigham andِ Women’s Hospital inِ Boston studied questionnaire responses fromِ 121,700 female nurses enrolled inِ the United States Nurses’ Health Study, whichِ hasِ beenِ ongoing sinceِ 1976.

The study authors said such health leads to successful ageing.

The study was published this week in the journal PLoS Medicine.
