A new report suggests that healthy adults who drink one or two glasses of alcohol each day have a lower risk of type 2 diabetes than teetotalers.

The Dutch study spanned 10 years and included 35,000 adults‚ ages 20 to 70 years. Individuals who consumed a moderate amount of alcohol and who met at least three of four conditions for a healthy lifestyle had a 40 percent lower chance of developing diabetes than those who did not drink alcohol at all. The four conditions were obesity prevention‚ regular exercise‚ not smoking‚ and consuming a balanced diet.
