FACTS AND FALLACIES
There has been a lot of talk lately about the risks and rewards that drinking wine has on a person's health. So what's true and what's not?
In reality, 'moderate' drinking (one or two glasses a day) does seem to protect against heart disease- but primarily for men aged over 4o and pre0menopausal women. There is little evidence that drinking wine or any other alcohol will improve the heath of younger people, who are less at risk of heart disease in the first place.
According to he British heart foundation, drinking more than two glasses a day could be harmful.
But before you go and pour your wine collection down the sink, relax. It really is true that wine, particularly red wine, does not contain several antioxidants, such as quercetin and resveratol, which may play a part in helping to prevent heart disease and cancer.
A woman can drink up to three glasses a day without significant risk to health.
