In brief: Lets review your que

There are studies that have shown that drink 1-2 glasses of red wine every day may you some heart benefits, but are based from the French diet where their rates of heart disease is less than Americans.
but you can obtain the same benefits from drinking dark grape Juice (not recommended in diabetes). Always drink in moderation

In brief: Neither really...

Ongoing controversy here.
Clearly alcohol increases risk of several cancers -- throat, esophagus, stomach. This appears to be true with ANY alcohol, although increasing with more exposure. Yes, there appears to be some cardiovascular benefit with very moderate amounts of alcohol, possibly more so with red wine but all alcoholic beverages potentially beneficial in moderation. Good and bad....

In brief: How old are you?

1 to 2oz of Red Wine helps with protection from Heart attack.
But regular Cardiovascular Exercise and balanced high fiber food are more important than the Alcohol. If you are more than 35 years of age you should also be taking one baby Aspirin to protect you heart from first heart Attack.
