As if there was ever any doubt? Wine drinking men live longer

But you do have to wonder – is there really some chemical health benefit?  Or maybe it’s simply that those of us who drink wine have learned to relax and enjoy our lives more.  I’ve always been (fascinated? intrigued?) by those people you meet who are always pinched and uptight about everything and they never seem to get any joy out of life.  Contrast that to those who embrace all that life offers and seem to be some of the happiest people I know, enjoying every opportunity that presents itself – whether they’re skydiving or simply sipping a very nice Malbec on the back deck and watching butterflies.

Considering that every healthy baby I’ve ever seen smiled a lot – you have to wonder where things turned for those who never learned to enjoy this time that we’ve got.  And now we’ve got even more reason – simply enjoying life may actually let you have more of it to enjoy!

Men who drink up to half a glass of wine a day may live five years longer than teetotalers, according to a Dutch study published online Thursday by the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. The study also concluded that men who consumed light-to-moderate quantities (about 20 grams) of any type of alcohol daily gained two and a half years of life expectancy, with a lower risk of dying from coronary heart disease and other ailments associated with poor circulation.
