    Doctors 'to reject claims red wine can be good for you'

    Post by Jan1 on Thu Jan 07 2016, 12:42


    Red wine's supposed health benefits are set to be rubbished by Government experts rewriting the rule book on the nation's alcohol consumption, according to reports.

    A landmark report by Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies published on Friday will destroy the long-held belief that red wine can cut the risk of cancer, heart disease and memory loss when drunk in moderation, The Sun reported.

    In the first overhaul of alcohol guidelines for two decades, doctors will reportedly warn that there is no "safe" level of alcohol consumption and drinking just a small amount may in fact increase the risk of some cancers.
    The review was launched in 2012 and its findings are expected to reflect the latest research that links even occasional alcohol consumption to health problems in later life.

    The Government currently advises men do not drink more than three to four units per day - up to 21 units or less per week - while women should drink no more than two to three units a day, or 14 units per week.

    Under the new guidelines the gender difference will be thrown out and drinkers will be to keep off the booze for at least two days a week in order to allow their livers to recover.

    A recent study by University College London found patients who gave up for four weeks saw benefits for their liver function, blood pressure and cholesterol levels and were also at lower risk of developing diabetes and liver disease.

    And a report by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) advised middle-aged people there is "no safe level of alcohol consumption".

    I won't be giving away my enjoyment of a good red in a hurry. Are these the same mob that advocated grains, fruit and pasta for T2Ds?

    Probably. Last month red wine in moderation good for health, this month bad. I reckon 99% of people don't give a monkeys for all the crap that appears on a daily basis in the media, why should they? it's 99% complete bollocks. Unless of course it's promoting low carb. rofl Seriously, all we push is whole fresh food, and we don't need anyone to tell us that's a better option than gruel from a petro-chem type factory.

    IMO I think that moderate dry alcohol consumption is beneficial because it lowers blood glucose spikes. This is particularly true for wine because it is often consumed with meals. This is also why it is helpful for diabetics.

    Yes I think Eddie nailed it. It's intended to distract us from what is REALLY doing the harm and get us arguing about trivialities. Every windmill they tilt against is Real Food made from Real Ingredients, everything they recommend comes from a factory. Next they'll be telling us that Coke is actually really healthy, or Watneys Red Barrel (that dates me!)
