Secret to a long life? Booze, coffee and a few extra pounds

IRVINE, Calif. -

Want to live past 90? We have some good news for you.

People who drink moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee and are overweight in their 70s live longer lives.

That's according to researchers at the UC Irvine Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders. The researchers started a study in 2003 to look at what makes people live past 90.

They said participants in the study who drank moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee lived longer than those who don't drink at all.

And the news gets better. People who were overweight in their 70s lived longer than people who were normal or underweight in their 70s.
