Just my luck

Time.com reports on a study that finds Heavy Drinkers Outlive Nondrinkers. Just so you don't get the wrong idea, moderate drinkers lived longest based on the 20 year study.

Also, I won't feel too badly as the study only followed 1,824 participants initially between the ages of 55 and 65, 63% of which were men.

All this is to say: remember context when reading publicized findings.

Two years ago on TTaT: What are you wearing?


  1. Shoot, and here I was, all ready to take a snootful or two or three. :)

    I've become such a lightweight that if I have more than a couple of glasses of wine, I'm terribly tipsy. (And in need of a gallon of water to counteract the alcohol.)

  2. Go ahead and have a snootful. You'll still outlive the nondrinkers. ;)
