Red Wine Saves Lives!
There are more signs that red wine could be a cure-all for humans. The latest study claims that red wine slows the spread of lung cancer.
Scientists looked at the effects of red and white wine on six culture plates that each contained millions of human lung cancer cells. The experiment was done four times to make sure the results weren’t a fluke.
The plates that got treated with wine demonstrated “60 percent inhibition” of the cells. That means the wine dramatically lowered cancer cell growth.
What else might red wine be good for? Check this out:
1. Red wine may promote heart health–Studies show that a compound in red wine called resveratrol can function as an antioxidant, which would lower cholesterol levels and keep away blockage in heart vessels. That would lead to a lower risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.
2. It may reduce men’s risk of developing prostate cancer–Research found that men who drank an average of four to seven glasses of red wine a week were half as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer as those who didn’t drink the stuff at all.
3. Drinking a bit of red wine on the regular could keep the blues away—A study found that people over 55 who drank a glass of alcohol a day were less likely to be depressed than those who drank more or less.
4. Even if you eat a ton, red wine might add years to your life–A study found that mice on a high-calorie diet lived longer when they consumed resveratrol.
5. It goes so well with your food–The Mediterranean Diet is one of the healthiest out there and is all about drinking a glass of red wine with dinner every night.
