Abstract

A prospective study of middle-aged Chinese men contributes to existing evidence that moderate alcohol intake may improve chances of longevity. The consumption of no more than two drinks per day was associated with a 19% reduction in mortality risk. This protective effect was not restricted to a specific type of alcoholic drink.
