1. DRINKING ALCOHOL…Mind you, as always it's wise to ensure you don't exceed your daily 3-4 units, even on Christmas Day.
There is overwhelming scientific evidence that moderate drinkers live longer than teetotalers. Moreover, the recent Million Women Study in the UK, which looked at the link between drinking and cancer, found that nondrinking women had a higher incidence of cancer than those women who had one drink a day. American researchers found men consuming two alcoholic drinks a day had a 36 percent less risk of developing diabetes.
