Alcohol Consumption May Help Women Age Better.


A new study on alcohol consumption and aging suggest a new mantra: A glass of wine a day keeps dementia away!

After analyzing nearly 14,000 responses to the Nurses’ Health Study — one of the largest ongoing women’s health studies in the U.S. — Harvard researchers found 58-year-old women who drink 1 alcoholic beverage a day had a 20% better chance of “successful aging” compared to those who didn't.

"Successful aging” was defined as making it to the age of 70 with good cognitive function, no major chronic diseases, no physical limitations and good overall mental health.

“If you just focus on one aspect of health, that’s very misleading. What we are looking at is very comprehensive. For women who have one drink per day — equivalent to one can of beer, one shot of liquor or one glass of wine — that is associated with an increased chance of achieving successful aging, which means multiple aspects of health.”

Researchers found that the results were even more positive when women spread the amount of alcohol ingested throughout the week (one glass a day for 5 days), so don't use this as an excuse for binge drinking yourself silly, ladies!

Inaelekea kila binadamu wa kisasa lazima awe na kilevi chake ili azeeke kwa raha:

Kama siyo mshabiki wa michezo, basi mvuta-sigara.

Kama siyo mwana-michezo wala mvuta sigara, basi wanaume kibao!


Kama siyo mwana-michezo, wala mvuta sigara, hata kupenda wanawake wengi hapana, BASI MVUTA-BANGI HUYO...!


Kama yote hayo hayafanyi, LAZIMA ATAKUWA ANAKUNYWA HIYO POMBE INAOSIFIWA LEO (nami napendelea hiyo pombe lakini nina nia ya kuacha sasa kabisa...ha! ha! ha!)


Kwavyovyote tutakubaliana na hili: MTAKATIFU HAYUPO TENA DUNIANI... HATAKIWI...HATA CHEMBECHEMBE ZA DAMU HAZIMTAKI KABISA NA ATAZEESHWA HARAKA MNO NA UTAKATIFU WAKE! lol!!!
