Zutphen Study: Wine Adds Five Years to Life, More Than Beer, Dutch Study Finds

An ongoing longitudinal health study from the town of Zutphen, Netherlands, yields a result that is probably not a surprise to many of us: drinking wine, especially red wine, in moderation, may add years to your life. The Journal of Epidemeology and Community Health reported on the findings this week, and described an average five year extension of life-span for wine drinkers who drank, on average, less than half a glass of wine - mostly red wine - per day. According to reporting by Bloomberg, this compared to an average 2.5 year extension of life-span for those who drank beer in addition to wine.
