To maximize your longevity, drink some alcohol, with a cup of coffee, plus, do exercise:

  • Overweight  (mind you, not obese) people live longer than those underweight!
    • This is nothing new.  Click on a six year old article, but general info has been around for a decade.
    • Maintain a body mass index of between 25 and 29.  How to calculate your BMI?  Click on this.  Whoops, my BMI is 24.  Hmm.....normal is, apparently, not good:

Underweightless than 18.5
Normal18.5 to 24.9
Overweight25 to 29.9
Obese30 or greater

  • Does this mean if you do have three drinks/day, a cup of coffee can reduce your potential for liver cancer.  YES!!!   If you read that article, a fine point is that you can have three drinks, but have that cup of coffee.  My recommendation, though, would be, sure, go ahead, if you're not driving, have your two drinks, but keep it at that, plus have a cup of coffee anyway.   Also, exercise and fish consumption reduce your risk of liver cancer.
  • After decades of telling us that milk will keep us healthy and fat will kill us, now they tell us that every glass of milk a woman drinks each day increases her chances of dying by 15 per cent and saturated fat has nothing to do with heart disease.  Oh, and EXERCISE is especially good for you.
That ocean storm east of the Philippines remains a tropical storm, but Maysak is soon to attain hurricane strength, and could well attain Category 4 power.  The current predicted track is towards Manila:
