That's true if you drink really a little amount and not often it is good for health. Sometimes our mind needs to relax and disconnect from reality. But, sure, you must comply with the permissible rate. Medicals say that 50 ml of red wine, rich in antioxidants per day is indeed good for health. And, of course I don't mean the chemical drinks from fast food with alcohol. Especially for me, I select whiskey and wine. But to maintain your organism healthy you need to follow right nutrition, healthy way of life, make sports, drink as more as possible water, use supplements for longevity with foods (like these ones thelongevityspecialists.com), eliminate stress and depression from your life. In such way you will be really healthy and you will live a long life. But you should not rely only on alcohol. LOL.
