For those over 90, alcohol better than exercise for longevity

When it comes to making it into your 90s, booze( alcohol ) actually beats exercise, according to a long-term study.

Hi  Sake and wine lovers, how’s your liver?  Sounding “alcohol” makes me happy because booze is better than exercise, but today’s topic is for persons over 90 years old, nonagenarian as I’m a still septuagenarian.

Why you can say ” alcohol is better than exercise”?

The research, led by University of California neurologist Claudia Kawas, tracked 1,700 nonagenarians enrolled in the 90+ Study that began in 2003 to explore impacts of daily habits on longevity.


Researchers discovered that subjects who drank about two glasses of beer or wine a day were 18 percent less likely to experience a premature death, the Independent reports.

Meanwhile, participants who exercised 15 to 45 minutes a day, cut the same risk by 11 percent.

“I have no explanation for it, but I do firmly believe that modest drinking improves longevity,” Kawas stated over the weekend at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual conference in Austin, Texas.

Other factors were found to boost longevity, including weight. Participants who were slightly overweight ? but not obese ? cut their odds of an early death by 3 percent.

“It’s not bad to be skinny when you’re young but it’s very bad to be skinny when you’re old,” Kawas noted in her address.

Subjects who kept busy with a daily hobby two hours a day were 21 percent less likely to die early, while those who drank two cups of coffee a day cut that risk by 10 percent.

Further study is needed to determine how habits impact longevity beyond people’s genetic makeups.

Please don’t be disappointed for “Wine Lovers” as this article is for 90s people, however, we understand again “moderate drinking” when you are under 90.

From this point, I’d like to introduce this occasion, that is “Chambertin” as explained below,

『Wine loved by Napoleon !』

Napoleon Bonaparte was well known the fact that he was Emperor of the France, who dominated continental European after he won most of many wars and the vast majority of his battles.

And this is also well known the episode that Chambertin wines were Napoleon’s favorite and
it is said that he insisted that they be available to him even during his various military campaigns. According to a historian, the Chambertin was the only wine Napoleon drank during his reign as Emperor.

Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest wine-producing village in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or (the hill of gold) and this is one of the most prestigious and revered names in Burgundy, often referred to as ‘the king of Burgundy’, due to the richness, masculinity, and power of the best of the wines.

Chambertin is an Appellation d’origine controlee (AOC) and Grand Cru vineyard for red wine in the Cote de Nuits subregion of Burgundy, with Pinot noir as the main grape variety.

Chambertin is located within the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin, and it is situated approximately in the centre of a group of nine Grand Cru vineyards all having “Chambertin” as part of their name

Their prices differs depending on the factors such as the vintage year, the name of vineyards and the name of producer, bottler and so on.

Here’s one which I strongly recommend as you surely love once having a taste of it.

That’s is 2000 Domaine Louis Remy, Grand Cru.

Sourced from Louis Remy biodynamic vineyards throughout Gevrey-Chambertin, this 2000 is a delightful rendition of the appellation, full of savoury red fruit, balanced structure and a persistent finish. Enjoy with poultry, game, lamb or pork dishes.

A Votre Sante !
