Wine is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages on the planet. Its history spans thousands of years and while heavy drinking of any alcoholic beverage rather brings lots of health-related troubles instead of benefits, current research suggests that a glass of red wine each day may be providing you with more than just a little relaxation. Wine especially in Red wine is a rich source of antioxidants such as flavanoids. phenolics, and resveratorol. Red wine is recognized to work as a calming agent as well. A glass of red wine presumably relaxes the mind and reduces stress, thus helping the body to cope with diseases quickly and effectively. Other benefits"-

1. Reduced risk of death from nearly all causes:- European researchers suggest that moderate daily intake of red wine (22-32 g of alcohol) has a protective effect on all-cause mortality. According to studies from France, UK, Finland and Denmark, moderate consumption of wine is more beneficial than that of beer or spirits.

It is all a question of moderation. It is well known that a glass of red wine is good for your heart and could well protect you from heart disease, provides protection against stroke, prevents against pancreatic cancer and even stave off potentially-fatal food poisoning bugs such as e.coli, salmonella and listeria. Recent research has now suggested that a glass of white wine may be good for your lungs and lowers cholesterol. Wine contains anti oxidants which are know to be beneficial for our health. Remember only one glass per day and do not confuse wine with spirits or liquor which is of course not good for your health.

Alcohol has benefits and damages our health system but risk outweighs benefit...the effect of chronic or acute consumption of liquor is dependent on many factors such as percentage of alcohol in drink, frequency of consumption, dietary habits, life style, coexisting diseases, genetic/hereditary diseases, epigenetic factors, environmental factors etc etc...One can't say that "I'm drinking alcohol regularly for past 20 years and nothing happened to me, so it is safe"...it is totally unjustified and ridiculous...the effects vary from person to person...so in best interest of public health and ramifications of alcohol consumption on emotional health, social and economical balance it is always advisable to refrain from consuming it...so a general ban on liquor consumption is very much needed...Stay away from it for general purposes unless there is life threatening emergency in medical situations...
