Wine: Good For Your Health?

Every once in a while there seems to be another scientific study telling us about the incredible health benefits of drinking wine.

I generally don’t like the taste of alcohol and may have a sip or two of wine once in half a year, if that.

But according to some research at the University at Buffalo, drinking white wine may help your lungs to stay healthy. So drinking white wine can improve your lung function?

Dr Schunemann said it was most likely that white wine contained ingredients called anti-oxidants that stop the creation of harmful molecules called free radicals, which can wreak havoc on the lung tissues.

But needless to say, you shouldn’t overdo it. I’d rather find alternatives to boost my lung function.

White is good for your lungs and red apparently good for your heart.

According to a Yale School of Medicine researcher, drinking two to three glasses of red wine a day is good for your heart.

researchers have been trying to pinpoint why red wine has a cardiovascular protective effect ever since the discovery of the so–called “French Paradox” in 1992 when researchers found a 40 percent lower mortality rate from ischemic heart disease among people in France despite the high amount of saturated fats in their diet.

And what’s good for your liver and brain cells? Alcohol abstinence.
