It turns out that drinking (in moderation) can actually benefit your health. Studies have shown that a drink or two a day is linked to a 25-50% lower risk of heart disease and diabetes in women. Drinking is also shown to improve your memory and prevent weight gain.
Now, let’s not all get crazy drunk right away — all of this is linked with drinking in moderation, so getting plastered every night won’t be good for you. Also, in terms of weight gain, gulping down sugary drinks won’t help any, so keep that in mind next time you go for a daiquiri.
Other than that, this is fabulous news! Cheers to our alcohol-enhanced health!
