Though regular drinking appears to benefit our health, the researchers also warn against heavy alcohol consumption. The study did show some correlation with drinking and longer life, but we can’t forget that there is also so much evidence out there for the harmful effects of alcohol.

It’s best to keep drinking in moderation or even abstain from it altogether.
