“South Africa is the 9th largest producer of wine in the world” 6. Preventing vision loss Resveratrol in red wine may help prevent vision loss caused by out-ofcontrol blood vessel growth in the eye, according to findings published in 2010. Diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration are leading causes of blindness among Americans aged 50 years and above. This is due to an overgrowth of blood vessels in the eye, known as angiogenesis. If further research confirms findings, the scientists believe it could help not only people with vision problems due to diabetes, but those with atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, and other causes of retinal detachment. 7. Preventing colon cancer Scientists in the U.K. reported in 2015 that consuming low doses of resveratrol can reduce the size of bowel tumors by 10 April 2018 approximately 50 percent. Higher doses reduced tumor size by 25 percent. However, other experts point out that alcohol is strongly linked to different types of cancer, and that any benefit from resveratrol is likely to be outweighed by the negative effects of the alcohol. 8. Preventing breast cancer Regular consumption of most alcoholic drinks increases the risk of breast cancer. However, thanks to chemicals in the seeds and skins of red grapes, women who drink red wine in moderation may be spared this risk. Normally, alcohol increases a woman's estrogen levels, and this encourages the growth of cancer cells. However, the aromatase inhibitors (AIs) that are present in red wine, and to a lesser extent white wine, reduce estrogen levels and increase testosterone in women approaching menopause. It is the grape rather than the wine that primarily provides these beneficial compounds, so eating red grapes is more healthful than drinking red wine. Nevertheless, if a woman is going to choose an alcoholic drink, red wine might be a better option, compared with other beverages. Scientists have questioned the claims of this study and insist that "alcoholic beverages cause breast cancer independent of beverage type." 9. Improving lung function and preventing lung cancer Low doses of red wine, and to a lesser extent white wine, may boost lung function and prevent lung cancer cells from proliferating, according to at least one investigation. 10. Protection from prostate cancer A study published in 2007 reported that, in men who drink moderate amounts of red wine, the chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer is around half that of men who never drink red wine. The researchers defined moderate drinking as an average of four to seven glasses of red wine per week. Those who drank one glass a week were 6 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who never drank it.
