Wine For Your Health?
Wine is good for you in moderation! Your health risk will go up if you drink beyond what is recommended.
Women should drink no more than one glass per day and men can drink two glasses.
One glass is defined as 5 ounces. Moderate amounts of wine can raise your good cholesterol level and thin your blood.
Thanks to the alcohol content and natural occurring plant compounds, wine can reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers and slow the progression of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
You must be careful to drink in moderation as wine has also been shown to increase the chance of migraine headaches, tumor progression in women and cause you to gain weight.
