Heavy Drinkers Live Longer Than Non-Drinkers?


This makes me feel better about the handle of straight gin I drink before I go on the air every morning.  A new study in the medical journal "Alcoholism:  Clinical and Experimental Research", finds that heavy drinkers OUTLIVE nondrinkers.


Over the 20-year study, 69% of the nondrinkers died, versus 60% of the heavy drinkers.  Moderate drinkers survived the best . . . only 41% died.


The researchers say they have NO IDEA why this happens.  Their best theory is that, statistically, nondrinkers are more likely to be POOR, since drinking ain't cheap.  And without money, there are more STRESSES, like job and family worries.
