If you feel like living longer means having no fun, a new study has good news for you. Researchers at the University of California Irvine have discovered that people who drink coffee and alcohol in moderation actually live longer than those who abstain from both types of beverages.
The results came from the 90+ Study, which began in 2003 as a way to discover what makes people live past 90. The study enrolled more than 1,600 people during its lifecycle, with researchers checking in with participants every six months. During these check-ins, the study authors performed a variety of tests on participants, both cognitive and physical.
