No. 1 Magazine - - SCOTLAND’S NO.1 FOR HEALTH -

Why was it a no-go? Ob­vi­ously it’s ir­re­spon­si­ble to claim that al­co­hol is ‘good for your health’ and there­fore most va­ri­eties of al­co­hol have been clumped to­gether un­der the same ‘bad’ la­bel for decades. Why they were wrong: Now stud­ies have found that some types of al­co­hol, namely red wine, ac­tu­ally do have some health ben­e­fits. Red wine con­tains anti-ox­i­dants that can pro­tect the body’s cells against dam­age. It’s also been linked to low­er­ing the risk of some den­tal dis­eases, pro­tect­ing against cer­tain can­cers and po­ten­tially slow­ing mem­ory loss.

FACT: A Korean study linked red wine con­sump­tion to a drop in weight gain!
