Wine BUSINESS (you) improves with age: Glass at night is good for the elderly – but not for others
- It was found that drinking offsets the effects of some age-related diseases, including coronary heart disease, diabetes and dementia
- Researchers found that 60% of the lost life years were between the ages of 20 and 49, and about 15% of the years lost were aged over 65.
- In addition, 80% of alcohol-related deaths were in the elderly

A glass of wine a day can be good for you – if you are over 50, a new study will be launched.
Researchers found that there is a miracle here to compensate for age-related illnesses that appear in middle age – including coronary heart disease, dementia, diabetes, stroke and osteoporosis.
In fact, alcohol prevents about 1,500 deaths a year – and the Boston Medical Center team at Massachusetts found that 80 percent of them are adults aged 65 and over.
This is despite how we have been told to avoid alcohol because it has harmful effects, including breast cancer, pancreatitis and liver disease.
A new study from the Boston Medical Center found that 60% of the potential loss of life was between 20 and 49 years old, and about 15% of the years lost were over 65 (file image).
"By about 10 years, there was such a belief that alcohol is good for you," Dr. Naimi told DailyMail.com.
"It's not that alcohol cannot be enjoyed. One thing to say and another thing that claims to be good for your health.
He continued to explain that people in the United States start drinking until the age of 20, but many studies on drinking do not record people until they are 50 years old.
The main problem is that 40% of deaths due to alcohol occur before the age of 50.
This is due to a number of issues including gastritis, breast cancer, liver cancer, hypertension and prostate cancer.
"It shows that people who live up to the age of 50 and are drinking are currently" survivors "- if you want – drink," said Naimi.
“They could be healthier or had safer drinking patterns. They are not a suitable group to compare with non-drinkers.
In the current study, the group looked at data from an Alcohol Disease Application.
In the management of disease control and prevention centers, the database estimates that, between 2006 and 2010, the number of deaths and potential loss of life in the US is related to alcohol.
Researchers found that age was an important factor in the death of alcohol-related conditions such as liver disease, stroke and pancreatitis.
Nearly 36 percent of alcohol-related deaths were in people aged 20-49.
But deaths in this age group were only 4.5 percent behind alcohol consumption.
Almost 35% of people aged 65 and over were caused by alcohol.
But in the middle of alcohol, the number of deaths of older citizens was 80%.
Dr. Naimi said that this is due to the beneficial effects of alcohol, especially cardiovascular diseases and cholelithias, also known as gallstones.
Previous studies have shown that drinking a small amount of alcohol reduces the cholesterol level in the bile, thereby reducing the risk of gallstones developing.
About 60 percent of the lost years of life – the highest number – were between 20 and 49 years old.
People over 65 years of age lost about 15 percent a year.
Dr. Naimi said that the results show that younger people "die more from drinking than die from lack of drinking".
However, older people are likely to see moderate health benefits.
According to the Mayo Clinic, drinking on average means no more than one drink per day for women and men over 65 years.
It is about 12 ounces of beer, five ounces of wine and 1.5 ounces of distilled alcohol.
The benefits may include reduced risk for the heart and possibly reduce the risk of stroke and diabetes.
