BENEFITS OF WINE

Drinking wine promotes longevity and also reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes. According to a research at the Columbia University, non-drinkers have a surprisingly rapid brain decline than moderate drinkers.

The study of wine has been going on for years and it takes a lot of experience for someone to fully understand all there is about it. For a layman, understanding its benefits and cons seem to be outright boring but if you ever find yourself in a party and want to make a lasting impression, here are five facts that might or might not lighten up the mood.


Facts About Wine & Benefits of Wine:

  1. Wine was actually preserved by monks

We should be thanking the monks for their research as they preserved and innovated the art of winemaking during the middle ages. One of the most famous wines, “Champagnes Dom Perignon” was named after a monk named Dom Pierre Perignon who was an advocate of organic winemaking and experimented to improve the process.

  1. Drinking wine can improve your sex drive

Often alcohol beverages are associated with lethargy but according to a study, women who drink 2 glasses of wine daily actually have a better sex drive than other women.

  1. Wine names are based on their geographical location or grape varieties

Many famous European wines are named after their geographical location; one example is the Bordeaux wine. Non-European wines usually have a name of the grape (aka the varietal) on the label – for instance, Cabernet Sauvignon from California.

It’s a common belief that drinking particularly beer makes you fat i.e. the beer belly but wine has no such quality. In actuality, women who regularly drink moderate amounts of alcohol weighed almost 10 pounds less than women who did not drink at all.

People with moderate or greater symptoms of depression were more likely to believe at least 1 of 4 false statements about Covid-19 vaccines.

People suffering from depression are more likely to believe vaccine-related misinformation, according to a new study. The study found that people with moderate or greater symptoms of depression were more likely to believe at least 1 of 4 false statements about Covid-19 vaccines.

Those who believed the statements to be true were half as likely to be vaccinated, the study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, indicated. 'It is clear the pandemic has taken a heavy toll on the mental health of Americans, especially young people," said researcher Katherine Ognyanova from Rutgers University, the US.
