Can drinking red wine save your life?
Scientific breakthroughs within the past several years suggest that it may not be an unreasonable question.

But large studies now question whether the French Paradox was an illusion, and suggest any level of consumption is hazardous.

Wine & Health: Making Sense of the New Science and What it Means for Wine Lovers delves into the science behind the secret to living longer and living better with wine.
