Booze, coffee, being overweight —the keys to long life?

Really? Study says booze, coffee, being overweight could be key to long life   People who drink moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee and are overweight in their 70s live longer lives, according to researchers at UC Irvine Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders.
A new study claims that people who drink alcohol and coffee live longer than people who don’t. The researchers started a study in 2003 to look at what makes people live past 90.
They say participants in their study who drank moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee lived longer than those who abstained from either drink. But anyone who plans to spend their nights drinking nothing but tequila should use caution, It’s not about getting drunk every night — researchers say moderate drinking—one or two glasses of wine, maybe a little bit more, and a little bit of coffee, should do the trick
In addition, people who were overweight in their 70s lived longer than people who were normal or underweight in their 70s.
Researchers at the “90+ Study” say that they are always looking for new participants who are 90 years old or older.
