Two daily shots of alcohol 'can make women healthier'

A daily tot or two of gin or wine could make women healthier, according to Harvard research.

Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston have found that moderate alcohol consumption helps middle-aged women age better.

Total intakes of between 15.1 and 30 grammes of alcohol a day -- as much as two shots of spirits or three small glasses of wine -- improved the odds of "successful ageing" by 28pc.

The scientists defined "successful ageing" as living to at least 70 and being free of cancer, heart conditions and other chronic diseases.
