New study says we will live longer!

29 posts in this topic

In my newspaper today, there was a study led by a University of California neurologist that claims the key to living past 90: "subjects who kept busy with a daily hobby two hours a day were 21 percent less likely to die early..." 

Also mentioned were 2 alcoholic beverages (18 percent less likely to experience premature death) & 2 cups of coffee/day (10 percent less likely)! 

:cheers:

So have the drinks after you've finished with the sharp instruments for the day. :D

Now I can claim that cup of coffee I have with a shot of Baileys while working on miniatures is good for my health!

I had a doctor in the Uk who suggested  drinking  1 glass of wine a day,  was considered good for seniors but he said no to whisky etc, just wine

I think I will go and get a glass of the only wine I really like, Piesporter Gold Treppchen. it is fairly sweet, I am not a connoisseur , dry makes my lips quiver. Maybe if I drank more than my usual which is about three glasses a year I may live long enough to finish a few houses!! I do use alcohol in cooking though, does that count.

The alcohol evaporates in cooking.  Does anyone know if that's where the medicinal properties are?

Dessert as a side dish?  Nope, that's my younger DIL's trick.

My bad, I thought I was relying to Jeannine's post about no-bake alcohol-containing desserts, and that your post referred to that.  Both my parents were alcoholics, so booze for appetizer/ side dish wasn't unusual in my family (not for me, though, so your reply confused me).

@havanaholly my apologies if I hit a nerve - I do often forget that alcohol can be a problem for many.  Thankfully, we're just being silly.

No nerve hit with me, just a few memories I wish were different.  And the DIL would go for any dessert for a meal!
