The findings of the study are definitely interesting. One conclusion is that the subjects who consumed about two glasses of alcohol, whether beer or wine, were 18 percent less likely to suffer from a premature death. In comparison, daily exercise of around 15 to 45 minutes only reduced the risk of premature death by 11 percent.
