Taking exercise, drinking moderately, eating sufficient fruit and vegetables and not smoking can add as much as 14 years to your life, a study has found according to the BBC. Research involving 20,000 people over a decade found those who failed on all criteria were four times more likely to have died than those who succeeded.
A key part of this is drinking in moderation which the study defines as consuming between one and 14 units of alcohol per week (the equivalent of between half a glass and seven glasses of wine). The report explains that drinking more than 14 units a week negatively affects your health. Read the BBC article for more information.
