Drinking wine has been shown to help with weight loss due to the resveratrol and similar polyphenals that burn excess fat. It also reduces the risk of some cancers by slowing down the growth of such cancer cells. It even helps fight the common cold. Other health benefits of wine include improved mental wellbeing, cavity and tooth decay prevention, the promotion of healthy aging and sight protection. Of course, everything should be within moderation.
