How to live longer: The surprising drink which could be the secret to long life expectancy 1

“Wine was associated with women reaching 90 but not with men. Instead, intake of gin, brandy and whisky increased their longevity.”

What does the NHS say?

According to the health body, the following tips will ensure you keep the risks associated with alcohol consumption at bay:

  • Men and women are advised not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis
  • Spread your drinking over three or more days if you regularly drink as much as 14 units a week
  • If you want to cut down, try to have several drink-free days each week
