Wine and General Health

Researchers have found that those who drink 1-3 glasses a day regularly are healthier than those who drink none, and also than those who drink more. Even Hangovers aren't really from the alcohol - they're from the impurities that are in the beverage.

Any alcohol, like any other food item, can be used properly, or can be used to excess. Some people are sensitive to the natural sulfites found in wine - sulfites are higher in whites than in reds. Others get migrane headaches from too many tannins, which are found mostly in red wines. While avoiding misuse, we should also rejoice in the many fine benefits that can be had by properly using wine as it was meant to be used - in moderation.

that's true. Drinking a lot of water is good for our health. I drink water around 8-10 glasses a day.
