New Study: Excess Alcohol May Reduce Your Lifespan

Now, I’m not one to listen to ever new report that science puts out (unless it reaffirms what I already believe in), sometimes you do have to stop and look at the facts (Yes, I do read words sometimes…not often, but sometimes).

According to a new study, drinking more than the recommended amount of booze, which is 5 drinks a week, after the age of 40 can reduce your lifespan.

Researchers found that consuming five drinks per week is no problem, but after that, every beer beyond that shaves 15 minutes off your life, which – if this study is true – is about the same as a cigarette. Guess more isn’t always better.
