Study Shows Men Who Drink Wine May Live Longer 2009: Twin Taste

Study shows men who drink wine may live longer

A twin taste to tide us over: The report first surfaced in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health last week and was
reported this week in Modern Medicine, and let’s just say, at least half of us will find the news rather encouraging: Moderate consumption of wine is linked to a five-year bump in men’s life expectancy. According to the study’s results as described in its abstract, “Life expectancy was about 5 years longer in men who consumed wine compared with those who did not use alcoholic beverages.” And the abstract also concluded that, “These results could not be explained by differences in socio-economic status.” But the drumbeat of studies suggesting potential health benefits of moderate wine consumption continues, at least as they pertain to the major killers such as heart disease. For wine enthusiasts, that’s worth raising a glass to. A pair of wine-themed charity events illustrate how Dayton-area nonprofits have embraced the fermented juice of the grape as an effective fundraising vehicle. The 33rd Annual “For the Love of Wine” tasting benefiting Camp Emanuel held April 26 at Jay’s Restaurant attracted a robust crowd of 90-plus people, and raised a significant amount of money for a day and resident camp in southwest Ohio that serves hearing-impaired and developmentally impaired youths and hearing youths. Four out of the final five live-auction items &mdash a multicourse wine dinner for eight at Rue Dumaine restaurant, a multicourse dinner in Jay’s Restaurant’s wine cellar, a prepared-in-your-home wine dinner by Eric Jerardi of The Little Store, and a single bottle of 1986 Chateau Latour &mdash all sold for more than $1,000 each. The fifth item, a single bottle of 1986 Chateau Margaux, sold for “only” $950.
Then, on May 4, more than 70 people attended the $150-per-person wine dinner at Rue Dumaine to benefit WDPR-FM Classical 88.1. The event combine the talents of four Dayton-area female chefs: Jenn DiSanto of Easy Way Out catering Elizabeth Wiley of Meadowlark restaurant Anne Kearney of Rue Dumaine restaurant and Carrie Walters of Dorothy Lane Market. Friends of the station turned out alongside local “foodies.” The chefs had fun, and it showed.
