Hey, here's some good news for the new year! If you've been trying to come up with some resolutions for a healthier you in 2019 and you thought that nixing alcohol and/or coffee was a good idea, you might want to think again.

  • Those who drank only two glasses of wine or beer per day decreased chances of premature death by 18 percent.
  • Two cups of coffee per day decreased chances by 10 percent.
