Well, this is a bummer! A new study says an extra glass of wine or another beer will shorten your life.
Researchers at Britain's University of Cambridge say their findings show each glass of wine or pint of beer over the recommended daily limit will knock a half-hour off the expected lifetime of a 40-year-old. The weekly limits are roughly five standard glasses of wine or five pints of beer.
The good news is it does reduce the chance of a non-fatal heart attack.
One scientist involved in the study said drinking more than that raises the health risk for a 40-year-old as much as smoking. The study is published in the latest edition of the British medical journal "The Lancet."
