We often hear that it is better to drink a glass of wine from time to time than not to drink at all. But that is not necessarily true: Alcohol kills millions of people each year, but people have been drinking alcohol for thousands of years, especially in recent decades, wine is said to be very healthy. strong. Red wine is even thought to help extend longevity and reduce the risk of heart disease, but is it really healthy? The first question is of course what we need to define is ‘good for health’.
Many people think about heart health when it comes to the effects of wine. Lesser known is that research shows strong links between alcohol and cancer. Drinking one bottle of wine per week is likely to increase the risk of cancer in men by 1% and in women by 1.4% for non-smokers.
