Looks like you won't have to watch me drink myself to death after all...

A six member team recently published a study in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research on the mortality rates of consumers of alcohol.

And the results were rather shocking...

The study, led by psychologist Charles Holahan of the University of Texas at Austin, found that even after controlling all the drunksvariables that life can throw at a person (socioeconomic status, level of physical activity, number of close friends, quality of social support and so on), over a twenty year period the mortality rates were higher in people that had never been drinkers than in those who had drank heavily.

Of course, like in everything, those with the willpower to moderate their drinking more oft than not had the highest mortality rates in the study.

This study comes on the heels of a previous study that also found a direct link between moderate drinking (especially red 01-CHEERSwine) and a higher life expectancy, as well as another study (also published n the journal Alcoholism) found that nondrinkers tended to be more stressed out and depressed than moderate and heavy drinkers.

So there you have it folks...

If you were looking for a reason to go out and have a few pops this weekend, please take heed:

A few drinks is actually good for you and a few too many won't kill you.
