Important information contained in the same news item:

* Participants in the study were asked only to recall from
  memory an estimate of their drinking in the past.

* The study warrants further investigation.

* Dr. Toni Miles of the University of Texas Health Science Center
  stated that "it's not yet time to start encouraging life-long
  teetotalers to imbibe" (Journal of the American Geriatrics
  Society, 1998;46)

* "Individual factors that argue against initiation of drinking
  in late life include risk of falls with fracture, hemorrhagic
  stroke, and {*filter*}-polypharmacy (multiple drug) interactions."
