The researchers started a study in 2003 to look at what makes people live past 90.https://abc7chicago.com/4969273/
They say participants in their study who drank moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee lived longer than those who abstained from either drink.
I love a great cup of coffee and a glass of nice red wine. I am also extremely particular about where that coffee/coffee bean and wine come from. How were they grown, treated, produced. It is beyond organic – as even organically grown coffee can have mold and toxins present. Wine is the same thing – there are so many additives in commercial wine, the way they are grown, processed and produces. I only drink sugar-free, carb-free, and mold-free dry wines, they taste so fresh, and crisp and there is never a headache, even if on a rare occasion I overindulge.
The way I see it – being a health geek that I am, and living this lifestyle of constant focus on healing I do not have many vices. Smocking, drinking hard liquor, not sleeping, staying out all night dancing – non of these is a part of my life any longer. I had to give up sugar! Croissants, muffins, apple fritters and bagels – Oh how I loved them with my coffee. Twizzlers and gummy bears were my favorite candies, chewy and so yummy. Ice-cream. Potato chips! Nachos, fried calamari, pizza, pasta, pancakes, salami and hot dogs are no longer a part of my daily diet. Even bread! Sandwich or a toast – was an absolute necessity of our daily diet. The way I see it – with all that we gave up – we should be drinking every night just to make ourselves feel better. 🙂 🙂 🙂
A side note – I have never in my life done any drugs. I have tried pot for the first time in my late thirties and did not like it at all.
So i guess the point I am trying to make is that a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass or two of wine at dinner (couple of time a week) are vices that I love to keep, and I am willing to pay for a good quality product that will actually be beneficial to my health.
This research just confirms the benefits I came across studying and researching ways to improve my health and wellbeing.
To your health,
