Does red wine contain something specifically good for you that other alcoholic beverages don't contain?
Maybe, maybe not: On the heals of the red wine research (which focused on anti-oxidants), other studies looked at the alcohol itself. The result has been the suggestion that moderate consumption of alcohol can help to raise your HDL (good cholesterol) and lower your overall risk of heart disease. This equates to 2 "standard drinks" per day for a man, 1 for a woman (10 and 5/week, respectively). Beer, wine, whiskey. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Some do.: Many beers are made from barley, which contains Glutens. Most, but not all distilled alcohol is fine, however. Most fruit juices are fine if made from 100% real fruit. Most popular soft drinks, unflavored coffees, tea, and wine do not contain glutens. If flavorings are added to any of them, then you can't be sure without checking the labels. Good luck. ...Read more

Larger doses cause many problems, mostly to our ability to live with others successfully and navigate life's pathways, but also to the heart, liver, GI tract and every other organ. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It does NOT: People commonly use Red Bull with alcoholic beverages in the mistaken belief that they won't get as drunk, or that the vitamins, amino acids, sugar and caffeine (which is really the main ingredient) will allow them to be drunk yet function better (like in driving a car). These combinations are dangerous. All in all, I am not crazy about energy drinks in general, and this one in particular. ...Read more
