While the health benefits of a glass of wine each day are well known it is also common knowledge that more than a glass a day is actually bad for you even with anti-oxidant rich wine. New studies are showing that for those who are selecting their wine to enjoy as well as to get the maximum health benefits need to shop for those with less alcohol content.
Research shows that wine, which is 10% alcohol, is 7% less likely to cause cancer in those who consume it. This is especially true for cancers that occur in the breasts and the bowels. Most wines have an alcohol content of 12-14% and the research shows this slightly higher level of alcohol will counter some of the disease fighting properties that come from antioxidant rich wine.
Those who are wanting to have a glass of wine each day for their health should fill their wine carriers with lower alcohol content wines. But no matter what the levels within the wine the World Cancer Research Fund wants all consumers to remember that too much of a good thing can be a bad thing and wine should be limited to a single glass a day.
