Major Study Shows Red Wine Improves Cardiovascular Health

Posted by Mike P. on 2016-01-22 10:55:35 (487 views)

[News]
A glass of red wine every night may help people with type 2 diabetes manage their cholesterol and cardiac health, according to new findings from a two-year randomized controlled trial (RCT) led by researchers at BGU. Additionally, both red and white wine can improve sugar control, depending on alcohol metabolismgenetic profiling. In this first long-term alcohol study "Effects of Initiating Moderate Alcohol Intake on Cardiometabolic Risk in Adults With Type 2 Diabetes", just published in the prestigious Annals of Internal Medicine, the researchers aimed to assess the effects and safety of initiating moderate alcohol consumption in diabetics, and sought to determine whether the type of wine matters. People with diabetes are more susceptible to developing cardiovascular diseases than the general population and have lower levels of “good” cholesterol. Despite the enormous contribution of observational studies, clinical recommendations for moderate alcohol consumption remain controversial, particularly for people with diabetes, due to lack of long-term, randomized controlled trials, which are the "holy grail" of evidence-based medicine.

How Climate Change May Alter The Future Of Wine

Posted by Mike P. on 2015-12-17 19:58:59 (564 views)

[News]
Global warming has its markers, such as melting ice caps and rising sea levels. Its impact on the worlds vineyards is another, lesser known issue. And so its fitting that the COP21 conference on climate change is currently being held in Paris, and that Tuesday’s topic of discussion was agriculture.

"The vine is indeed a perennial plant that allows scientists to make comparisons from one year to another," says Herve Quenol, a researcher at the French National Centre for Scientific Research and a scientist with the International Organization of Vine and Wine. "Also, this plant has well-defined stages of growth that are directly related to temperature, whether its budding, flowering, the formation of clusters or, of course, the harvest. The consequences on these stages have been widely visible for several years."

More Studies Confirm Health Benefits Of Red Wine

Posted by Mike P. on 2014-09-27 14:13:00 (2187 views)

[News]
Whoever said no news is good news was wrong. Turns out drinking red wine is better for you than going to the gym! How?s that for good news? Jason Dyck and other science researchers in the University of Alberta in Canada found that red wine, nuts and grapes have a complex called resveratrol which improves heart, muscle and bone functions; the same way they?re improved when one goes to the gym. Resveratrol proved to be an effective antioxidant when tested on rodents which is why scientists are planning on testing it with diabetics. If results are positive for the benefits of the complex, patient?s heart health could be improved just as much as it does when they work out vigorously.

New Study On Wine And Cancer

Posted by Mike P. on 2013-04-09 12:24:34 (4227 views)

[News]
The study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology was led by Polly Newcomb, head of the Cancer Prevention Program at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre, Seattle.

Dr Newcomb said: 'Our findings should be reassuring to women who have breast cancer because their past experience consuming alcohol will not impact their survival after diagnosis.

'This study also provides additional support for the beneficial effect of moderate alcohol consumption with respect to cardiovascular disease.'

The study was based on data from almost 23,000 women who participated in the Collaborative Breast Cancer Study, sponsored by the National Cancer Institute.

About 5,000 participants were sent a follow-up questionnaire between 1998 and 2001 about their alcohol consumption habits after diagnosis.

A glass of wine a day will NOT affect a woman's chance of beating breast cancer

Modest wine consumption can actually increase chance of survival

Cuts risk of dying from heart disease risk by 15 per cent

But beer or spirits do not have same effect, nor does heavy drinking
