Dr Charles J Holahan from the University of Texas at Austin (USA) has published a paper in the Journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research stating that moderate drinking prolongs the life span of individuals.  In relation to this study, some of the catchy sentences that were published by the News papers include “Why do heavy drinkers outlive Nondrinkers?”; “People who drink alcohol outlive those who abstain“; “Heavy drinkers outlive Non-drinkers: Cheers to that“; and “A sobering truth, drinkers live longer than non-drinkers.” However, molecular basis of this finding largely remains unknown.

Here, Dr L Boominathan, Director-cum-chief scientist of GBMD, seems to have found answer for the question: How/why does alcohol help one live longer? Dr L Boominathan further reports here that “the issue of Morality versus Mortality: Molecular mechanistic insight into why moderate drinking prolongs life span of individuals.” Given the scientific justification (molecular basis) that encourages moderate drinking, our study may through light into the positive effects of moderate alcohol consumption in prolonging the life span of an individual.

 Attention: This article in not intended to suggest that drinking alcohol is good for you, or you suggest that you start drinking. There are many factors in a persons life to be considered, and the best way to get the right answers would be to consult with the family doctor(Graham, Digital Journal, 2014) or wait till we have complete mechanistic understanding of the effect of alcohol.
