A Longer Life With Chocolate, Red Wine and Beer
Researchers at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland carried out a study of around 70,000 women and men whose lifestyles were closely examined during a 16-year period. The study compared the mortality of those who followed an anti-inflammatory diet and those who didn’t.
An anti-inflammatory diet including the regular intake of foods such as fruits, vegetables, tea, coffee, nuts, chocolate and moderate amounts of red wine and beer, offered an 18 per cent lower risk of death by any cause, a 20 per cent lower risk of cardiovascular mortality and a 13 per cent reduced risk of death caused by cancer.
The study was published in the Journal of Internal Medicine.
