Wine continues to prove to be a potent element of human vitality. As it turns out, there is even more evidence of its benefits.
We always like to caviat this information with an important not – alcohol is basically a poison. There is a
level at which the benefits of wine are outwieghed by the amount of alcohol consumed. So, in moderation, wine continues to prove to be a lifestyle worth living. Enjoy the Wine Life!

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – The results of a new study add to accumulating evidence that consumption of red wine may reduce the risk of prostate cancer in middle-aged men.
Dr. Janet L. Stanford, from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, and colleagues studied data from 753 newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients between 40 and 64 years of age, and from a comparison group of 703 matched “controls” to assess the association between alcohol consumption and prostate cancer.
The men with and without prostate cancer completed in-person interviews about lifetime alcohol consumption and other risk factors for prostate cancer.
No clear associations were observed between the risk of prostate cancer and overall alcohol consumption, the team reports in published in the International Journal of Cancer.
