Wine and Health Benefits
Red wine has many properties that benefit health. Binge drinking is never recommended, but a few glasses of red wine a week is encouraged by some medical specialists. Many red wine drinkers seem to live healthier lives. Red wine prevents heart disease, other vascular conditions, and diabetes. Some studies even contribute red wine to helping prevent cancer and dementia. Wine also promotes longevity, lowers the risk of strokes, and cuts the risk of cataracts. Red wine has also been shown to reduce the risk of colon cancer. While this evidence is still being analyzed, red wine has conclusively been proven to provide some health benefits. Unfortunately conflicting studies state that long term alcohol abuse can lead to sclerosis of the liver, and other cancers such a as breast, liver and kidney.
