Want to live past 90? Keep drinking coffee and alcohol (in moderation, of course)
MILWAUKEE -- If you want to maximize your chances of living past the age of 90, keep drinking coffee and alcohol -- in moderation.
A University of California-Irvine study found people who drank moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee lived longer than those who abstained.
The study began in 2003 and engaged 1,600 of "the oldest old" -- the fastest growing age group in the United States.
Participants went through neurological, psychological and cognitive and physical testing.
The study is ongoing.
