DailyDirt: Correlations With Living Longer

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Lots of people say they'd like to live longer. So longevity has been studied extensively, and a vast number of correlations have been found. The list literally goes on and on and on. This doesn't mean anyone has discovered the cure for death, and these correlations often have no causation logic behind them whatsoever. Drink a glass of wine every day, eat no meat, restrict your calories drastically, and read some of these other correlations. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Mr. Wheeler: uh, what?

    For starters, France has one of the HIGHEST, if not THE highest, per capita rates of wine consumption in the world.

    Speaking as a healthcare practitioner, it is also false that alcohol consumption has no beneficial impact. Moderate consumption of alcohol has been correlated with lower risk of stroke, development and death from heart disease, and possibly prevent diabetes.

    You should think before you speak. You should do your homework as well.
