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!
