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

Generally, a bad combination. ...Read more
