Expatriates may be just as likely to make claims on international health insurance policies if they drink wine instead of spirits, contrary to popular opinion.
A study led by reviewers in the International Scientific Forum on Alcohol Research and published by Boston University School of Medicine revealed other traits are more common among people who drink wine, including higher levels of income and education and a lower frequency of tobacco smoking.
The research involved examining 802 people aged between 55 and 65, controlled for behavioural, socio-demographic and health issues.
"Among older adults who are moderate drinkers, the apparent unique effects of wine on longevity may be explained by confounding factors correlated with wine consumption," the investigation concluded.
It is thought a moderate intake of alcohol can support cardiac health, although HEART UK nutritionist and registered dietician Linda Main claimed the improvements are not sufficient to justify the consumption of this substance among people who currently abstain.
