Red Red Wine, Stay Close To Me
I usually take researchers’ findings with a grain of salt. Well I used to until a study showed that salt was bad for me, even a little bit. Every day there’s a new study paid for by our hard-earned money in the form of Government grants that aim to confuse us by their contradictory results. Chocolates are good/bad, jogging is good/bad/good, nothing is safe from these pesky researchers. You like it? They will research it.
I took comfort in the fact that I could indulge in a glass of red wine when I needed to relax, as studies showed that it was not as bad as once thought. In fact, it was great for the heart and whatever else! I don’t indulge but knowing I could was heartening. Like having a bodyguard around just in case.
So imagine my dismay when I recently read that red wine was not good for me at all! Apparently previous studies were skewed, giving a false result and lulling people like me into a false security.
But don’t toss out that bottle of Merlot just yet, there’s another study that is still ongoing. Stay tuned for the results. In the meantime, let’s drink to your health…Oh never mind!
