Wine improves over the years (for you): a glass of night is suitable for the elderly – but not for anyone else
- It has been found that drinking substitutes are the effects of certain age-related diseases, including coronary heart disease, diabetes and dementia
- Researchers found that 60% of potential lost years were in the age group from 20 to 49 years, while 15% of lost years of age were over 65 years old.
- In addition, 80% of the deaths caused by alcohol was among the elderly

A glass of wine per day can be good for you – if you are over 50, notes a new study.
Researchers found here and there a miracle to compensate for age-related diseases that occur in middle-aged years – coronary heart disease, dementia, diabetes, stroke and osteoporosis.
Indeed, alcohol prevents about 1500 deaths a year – and a team at the Boston Medical Center in Massachusetts found that 80 percent of these are among adults aged 65 and over.
This is despite the fact that we need to prevent the consumption of alcohol due to its harmful effects, including breast cancer, pancreatitis and liver diseases.
A new study from the Boston Medical Center concludes that 60 percent of potential life-years have been lost in the 20 to 49-year age group, while about 15 percent of lost years are over the age of 65.
"Until about 10 years ago, there was the belief that alcohol was good for you," said Dr. Naimi for DailyMail.com.
"We can not enjoy alcohol. One thing is to say, and one more thing that is supposed to be good for your health.
He explained that people in the United States began to drink already in the early 20s, but many drinking studies do not enroll people until they are 50 years old.
The main problem is that 40 percent of alcohol-related deaths occur before the age of 50.
This is due to a number of issues, including gastritis, breast cancer, liver cancer, hypertension, and prostate cancer.
"This shows that people who live up to 50 years and drink at the moment" survive "- if you want – their drinking," said Dr. Naimi.
"They may have been healthier or have safer drinking patterns. There is no suitable group for comparison with those who do not drink.
For the current study, the team reviewed the application data for the impact on alcohol-related diseases.
In the database run by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, estimates of deaths and years of potential lost alcohol-related lives between 2006 and 2010 in the United States.
The researchers found that the age at which alcohol was killed due to liver disease, stroke and pancreatitis was an important factor.
Nearly 36 percent of alcohol-related deaths occurred in people between the ages of 20 and 49.
But in the case of deaths that were prevented by the consumption of alcohol in this age group, it was only 4.5 percent.
In people aged 65 and over, about 35 per cent of deaths were caused by alcohol.
However, 80% of deaths were caused by alcohol abuse by older citizens.
Dr. Naimi said that this was due to the beneficial effects of alcohol – especially cardiovascular diseases and holelitas, also known as gallstones.
Previous studies have shown that drinking small amounts of alcohol lowers the amount of cholesterol in the bile and thus reduces the risk of developing gallstones.
The lost years of life were about 60 percent – the largest number – between the age group from 20 to 49 years.
In people older than 65 years, about 15 percent of years have been lost.
Dr. Naimi said that the results show that younger people "more likely to die from alcohol consumption than to die from lack of drinking."
However, older people are more likely to see the health benefits of moderate drinking.
According to the Mayo Clinic, moderate drinking means no more than one drink per day for women and men over 65 years of age.
It is about 12 ounces of beer, five spoons of wine and 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits.
Benefits may include reduced risk for the heart and possibly a reduction in the risk of stroke and diabetes.
