While there is plenty of research which shows that red wine in moderation is not only the perfect addition to a meal but also a healthy one the thing consumers need to remember is moderation is required. New research is showing that for some that moderation needs to be monitored even more closely than for others.
Studies are showing that for women who have had breast cancer drinking more than three glasses of wine in a week can increase the chance that breast cancer will return. In the two thousand women studied those that had more than three glasses a wine in a week had a thirty percent likelihood that their breast cancer would recur.
While this does not mean that women who have had breast cancer must stop drinking wine altogether it does mean that they should carefully monitor how much they do consume. Of course there are still benefits to red wine so enthusiasts should continue to fill their wine bags with great bottles of wine while shopping but carefully enjoy each glass with only a few meals a week.
