Which brand red wine is best for girls (21 yrs old)?

Which brand red wine is best for girls (21 yrs old)?

Actually none. 4 oz.: Wine (maximum) per day has correlated with ↓ed cardiovascular events in "observational" studies done in France, less so Italy. However these are not the standard of evidence. Prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trials more reliable. Observational studies in other countries have not shown such benefit. All alcoholic beverages are fermented carbohydrates (i.e. sugars). ...Read more

Does drinking 4-5oz of red wine everyday good for your health? Thanks

Does drinking 4-5oz of red wine everyday good for your health? Thanks

It very well may be: BUT there are serious cautions. If you really kept it to 4-5 ounces and didn't go on to gradually drink more and more, it would probably be fine....even good! But we (doctors) see SO MANY people not be able to keep to this modest amount. There is some evidence that red wine is superior to other forms of alcohol but this evidence is weak. A MODEST daily amount is not harmful; it may well be helpful ...Read more

How much red wine should I drink each day to get the health benefits?

How much red wine should I drink each day to get the health benefits?

Well.............: Health benefits of alcohol intake include wine, beer and liquor (not including what you mix it in). Red wine is not significantly better. Studies show that people who drink 1-2 standard size beverages a day have better cardiovascular outcomes than those who do not. One standard beverage is 12 oz beer, 5 oz wine, or 1.5 oz liquor. Any day with more than 2 is not as good, so more is not better. ...Read more

Antioxidants...: Red wine has been shown to be beneficial for health-likely due to the antioxidants that are found in the skin of the grapes. This is not a reason to start drinking wine if you don't drink alcohol. Excessive alcohol consumption certainly has risks that outweigh the benefits. If you want antioxidants, you are better off eating a spinach salad with vegetables than drinking wine. ...Read more

This is a great: Example of how many things in life, especially health, are not totally black or white in spite of applying a rigorous scientific method. Best evidence to date suggests that red wine contains substances, i.e. reservatrol that are healthy. Medical guidelines say 1 drink a day for men/2 for women is fine. Those who say "drink nothing" worry folks can't stop there and are at risk for alcoholism. Stay well ...Read more

Little impact: This old story is typical of the problems that are caused by retrospective studies -- self-reports without the possibility of controlling for other variables. Different studies give very different results. The hoopla a few years ago about something magic in red wine itself turned out to be fueled by fraudulent research. Stay healthy by proven methods & make ur alcohol / wine decisions to please u. ...Read more
