Life would be good if everything was used in moderation.
5. Wine helps fight the risk of cardiovascular disease

Researchers at the Harvard Medical School have shown that. Men who drink 5-7 glasses of wine per week have a 52% lower risk of prostate cancer than non-drinkers.
If you're still looking for a reason to pour a glass of wine a day; then the fact that it helps fight cancer cells would be a good reason. Look for Cabernet Sauvignon wines. This is a red wine that contains a lot of resveratrol, which has anti-cancer effects.
