A Glass Of Red Wine a Day Really DOES Keep The Doctor Away, Study Reveals

A glass of red wine a day really DOES keep the doctor away, study reveals after people who didn’t touch a drop were 11 times more likely to end up in hospital

A study of 21,000 men and women found moderate drinkers were healthier
Over six years 13,000 people ended up in hospital with average age of 56
But those who didn’t touch a drop were 11% more likely to have gone to hospital

Those who enjoy a tipple, but not too much, are less likely to be admitted to hospital than teetotallers.

The study looked at 21,000 men and women in Italy and found that for moderate drinkers, when mixed with a typically Mediterranean diet, a small glass of wine (125ml) a day lowered the chance of needing medical treatment compared with heavier boozers or those that abstain.

Over six years, there were 13,000 hospital admissions for those taking part, who had an average age of 56.

Previous studies have suggested red wine, in moderation, can be good for your heart, containing compounds that lower heart disease.

But Dr Ken Mukamal, of the Harvard Medical School, said: ‘We are absolutely not saying that any teetotaller should start drinking to improve his/her health.’

The study was published in the journal Addiction
