      I was suprised when I found out about red wine reducing the risk of food poisoning. That was very interesting to me. I agree with you, a glass of wine with dinner wouldn't hurt.

      Very interesting that wine counters the bugs that cause food poisoning. A good reason to have a glass of wine with dinner :)

      Great article....I love the taste of all wines, however, I know that I enjoy more than the 1-2 glasses daily of chardonnay which as you said brings headaches! I found Shiraz red wine which I enjoy and savor only 1-2 glasses. The Shiraz flavor has taken the overindulgence away and I can enjoy only drinking 1-2 glasses which as you said is more healthy! Thank you for you article!
