Harvard University conducted a study to correlate the effects of moderate drinking on women’s long lasting health into their golden years. And guess who wins? Yep, that’s right, you moderate drinkers are the big winners! Women who drink one or two alcoholic beverages a day are more likely to reach age 70 without suffering from heart disease, diabetes or cancer, and are less likely to be cognitively or physically impaired. Wonder what the findings would be if you threw in 2 to 3 days of Hilliard Studio Method per week? Well, I’ll be happy to be the test case for that!
My guess is that the women in this study know the value of living well, which means enjoying the simple pleasures of a glass of wine with a friend over a good meal or a good laugh. It’s a daily ritual we cherish!
