suggest a maximum of one

suggest a maximum of one glass a day for people at risk of coronary heart disease and NAFLD. Those who regularly and moderately drink beer or liquor, say the scientists, have a four-times higher risk than those who drink red wine. Anyone who already has hepatitis or any other kind of liver disease should avoid alcohol altogether. 15. Preventing dental cavities Red wine may help prevent dental cavities by getting rid of bacteria on the teeth, according to research published in 2014, in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (ACS). 16. Treating acne Research has indicated that resveratrol, with its antioxidant and antiinflammatory action, could help treat acne. The scientists suggest combining it with benzoyl peroxide and applying it directly to the skin, to maximize antibacterial activity. However, there is no evidence that drinking red wine has the same effect. Red or white wine? Resveratrol appears to underlie many of the health benefits of red wine. Red wine contains more resveratrol than white wine, because it is fermented with the skins, but awhite wine is not. Most of the resveratrol in grapes is in the seeds and skin. Non-alcoholic red wines may also include beneficial amounts of resveratrol. Other good sources are grapes, blueberries, raspberries, bilberries, and peanuts. Cautions & Risks : Wine consumption may have some health benefits, but drinking too much of any kind of alcoholic drink increases the risk of: addiction depression mental health problems cardiomyopathy arrhythmias stroke hypertension fatty liver alcoholic hepatitis cirrhosis several cancers pancreatitis Many other chronic diseases can result from excessive alcohol consumption. In 2016, scientists found that alcohol consumption is linked to a higher risk of invasive melanoma. Worldwide, around 3.6 percent of cancers are attributed to alcohol. In 2016, the U.K. government issued a warning that there is no safe level of alcohol. They advise people to achieve better health through "eating less and exercising more." Ultimately, many of the benefits linked to red wine are really benefits of resveratrol. Eating grapes and berries may be a more healthful option. 14 April 2018
