Wine and Cancer

Recent studies show that wine helps fight cancer. Wine contains resveratrol which helps supress cancer. Resveratrol is an antioxidant. The red grapes that go into red wine also have bioflavonoids, which are antioxidants and help prevent cancer to begin with.

Equally important is wine's role as a reducer of stress. Many studies have shown that a relaxed and positive attitude help greatly in the healing process. Wine is also shown to help cancer patients by relaxing them and helping them fight their disease.

The American Cancer Society did a study of 500,000 patients. They found that those who drank 1-2 glasses of wine each day had a 20% less chance of death.
