Whether you love alcohol, coffee or both, this news is good for you. Several studies have indicated that alcohol and coffee drinking contribute to living a longer life. This correlation only exists with moderate drinking of the beverages and not overdoing it, but given that some studies indicate the exact opposite effect, you may want to evaluate the studies yourself before you use them as lifestyle advice.
So what is moderate? Many argue that it's a drink a day, while some say it's up to three cups of coffee daily. Given that there is so much variation in body types and metabolism, it's probably difficult to give a definitive answer, but excessively drinking either is definitely not helpful for your health.
