    Middle-aged women who have an alcoholic drink every day may increase their chances of enjoying health in their old age, according to a new report.
    So is alcohol health food? No, according to the lead author, Dr. Qi Sun, an instructor in medicine at Harvard. “I would never recommend that nondrinkers start drinking with the thought of improving their health,” he said. “Physical activity and healthy body weight are much stronger predictors of successful aging than alcohol consumption.”
