Recently, a scientist from the University of California released the findings of a 15-year study that may make sake drinkers sit up and take note. She researched 1,700 subjects how daily activities and routines affected their health. The findings were cause for sake celebration as they discovered that those subjects who consumed two glasses of beer, wine, and I am adding sake, per day were 18% less likely to experience “premature death.” The study gloriously concluded even further that moderate alcohol consumption was actually better for the subjects than exercise.
