The dangers of excessive drinking and the benefits of moderate amounts of wine have been part of a continued debate within the health community for decades. This debate has been played out in the media and it has left wine drinkers feeling a little confused to say the least.
Whilst drinking too much wine is certainly not good for you, the evidence strongly suggests that a couple of glasses of wine may indeed have a beneficial impact on your overall health and that certain wines have more beneficial effects than others. Clinical evidence is clear that total abstainers from alcohol are likely to die younger than those drinking a glass or two a day on average.
"Binge drinking" or heavy daily consumption of any alcohol (more than 3-4 glasses a day) is not good for you in any way, therefore savour your wine.
