Reply to "Question about the health benefits of red wine"

You ought to take all this with a handful of salt, really. The health benefits of wine have been hard to prove, at best. It seems people wgho drink wine generally eat better too compared to a control group, so that's probably a more likely factor.

Jamie Goode (PhD in plant biology and author of wine science books) had the following to say a few months ago:

quote:
B******s! If red wine has health benefits, it is almost certainly not because of its antioxidant properties. The latest evidence suggests that dietary antioxidants don't really work. I do wish people would speak to someone knowledgable on wine and health issues before issuing this sort of disinformation.
