These sort of studies will always be difficult when we seek conclusive evidence. There are other variables at work, one being that drinking, at least for most people, is accompanied by social life which can be stress reducing in ways.
I have also find articles, not too long ago, that mentioned even one glass is detrimental to health. It's also true that affluent people live longer, and tend to drink less. The totality of 'human health' depends on a great many variables and scientists would have a hard time to control for all of them. I'm not saying it's impossible but there's many variables that are hard to define but on a human (and spiritual) level we know, feel and experience they do play a key role..
