Ok for wine: Your description of occasional 1-2 5oz glasses of wine should be fine, and not cause any damage to the heart. You may have seen reports,of health benefits from a single glass,of,wine due to reservatrol from grape,skins. Enjoy! Regardless, I have noticed some patients interpret that if one glass of good many must be better! That is not the question you asked, or my response.
