Ask Bacchus: To Your Health

Guys, are you looking for a good excuse to hang out with your friends and have a few beers? Well, now you have one…your health.

A new study conducted by the University of Oxford suggests that for men, grabbing a few drinks with your buds is not only a good time, it’s trivially essential to good health.

Seriously, a “guys’ night” is a must? Well, it’s more like two.

The study, conducted by Robin Dunbar, a psychologist and director of Oxford University’s social and evolutionary neuroscience research group, determined that men must meet up with friends not just once, but twice a week in order to reap the full benefits of male friendship.

According to the study, men who maintain social groups are less likely to suffer from depression caused by worries about money and job insecurity. They’re even able to recover quicker from illnesses than those with less social contact.

Benefits of strong male friendships include a stronger immune system, the release of endorphins, an overall decrease in anxiety levels, and (apparently) even higher levels of generosity. The same study shows most men get far less male bonding time than what they require, with 40% only able to make a “guys’ night” a weekly affair.
