If You Like Wine, Choose Red and Protect Your Body
I like to drink a glass of wine every now and then, and I typically don't care if it's red, blush, white or whatever. This past Memorial Day I drank several different wines because I enjoy wine! However, are you aware of how good a glass of red wine daily can be for you? It seems there are many reasons to enjoy a glass of red wine every day. That's just the news I wanted to hear!
There's a substance in red wine called resveratrol, which may be a compound that protects our bodies from cancers. The latest information from a study that will be published in Cancer Cell International indicates that red wine may slow the spread of lung cancer. Here are other benefits of drinking red wine:
- Men who drink an average of 4 to 7 glasses a week are half as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer
- Drinking a glass a day can stave off depression
- If you life on a high-calorie diet, it may help you to live longer
Besides the points already mentioned, red wine tastes good! So here's to you and me, and our red wine...cheers!
