Top 10 alcohol health claims

2. Lose weight with a glass of wine

In a study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, researchers from Purdue University say they’ve found a compound in red wine, grapes, blueberries and passion fruit that blocks immature fat cells’ ability to develop and grow.
Similar in structure to resveratrol –- the compound vaunted as the heart-healthy agent in red wine —  piceatannol is also thought to help protect the body against cancer, heart disease and neurodegenerative diseases. Resveratrol is converted to piceatannol in humans after consumption.

    So if you drink 50 glasses of red wine per month, that’s 12 per week, or 2 per day, with a day off, you will be 100% free of lung cancer. But it says nothing about smoking with those glasses of wine. A miracle cure!

  2. Derek says:

    ‘The beneficial mental effects of alcohol were found when a person drinks up to about 30 drinks per week, and increased with consumption.’ So the garbage that pours forth after a night on the booze isn’t just someone being totally pissed, they are being far to clever for us to understand. No, don’t think so, they are just pissed and being stupid.

    ‘Lose weight with a glass of wine’…and add kilos with litres of beer!
