Half a glass of wine a day can add almost five years to your life, say scientists. A study of almost 1,400 middle-aged men over a 40-year period found regularly drinking a little of any type of alcohol boosted longevity.

The biggest increase was seen in those who drank half a glass of wine a day, who tended to live about four-and-a-half years longer than those who abstained from alcohol. But those who drank up to two glasses of wine, two pints of beer or two shots of spirits a day also tended to live about two years longer than non-drinkers.

Red wine may hold the secret of long life, new research suggests.

Scientists have discovered an ingredient in red wine that has an effect on human cells, making them much more resilient to radiation.

Laboratory experiments show the molecule also extends the lifespan of baker’s yeast by up to 80 per cent.

Although at an early stage, the research raises the possibility of developing drugs that lengthen life and prevent the diseases of old age.
