Wait, isn’t wine good for you?

Today’s post is a link to my monthly contribution to PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.

It seems like every day you see or hear of a new study about the “health benefits” of wine consumption. For example, this month’s Wine Spectator has a headline that claims that wine improves Tuscan women’s sex lives. Less publicized are studies about the harmful effects of alcohol consumption, of which there are plenty. My article discusses why wine labels do not make the oft-repeated claim that a glass of wine a day can improve overall cardiovascular health. The answer may surprise you.
