Drink More Wine: It’s Science
A diet rich in olive oil, nuts, beans, fish, fruits and vegetables, and wine is good for your heart.
NYT reports on a new health study:
About 30 percent of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease can be prevented in people at high risk if they switch to a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil, nuts, beans, fish, fruits and vegetables, and even drink wine with meals, a large and rigorous new study found.
Clearly, the wine drinking is the key variable there. That’s my takeaway, at least.
While I haven’t seen any studies on this yet, I’m also drinking more whisky, just to be on the safe side.
