Quit whining -- and start "wine"-ing
Believe it or not, she thinks she's doing you a favor. That neighbor who invited you over to lunch, but won't pour more than a splash of Merlot in your glass -- she actually thinks she's HELPING you out.
She'll tell you how wine is bad for your blood sugar. She'll brag about her one-glass limit like she's the reincarnation of Mother Teresa.
Well, you can finally tell her to put a cork in it. Because it turns out all those years you were guzzling wine and toasting to your health, you weren't kidding.
You might not enjoy spelling Dr. Kari Poikolainen's name, but you're going to LOVE her message when it comes to enjoying your favorite wines. Dr. Poikolainen, who became famous as a top researcher for the World Health Organization, has proven that drinking a full bottle of wine a day won't harm your health -- but it could be the key to adding YEARS to your life.
The mainstream has been attacking alcohol for so long you'd think Jack Daniels stole their lunch money and slapped their mother. But alcohol is like anything else in life -- moderation is key.
In fact, Dr. Poikolainen found that wine is only unhealthy at about 13 units a day -- about 30% more than you'll get from a full, regular-sized bottle. Of course you don't have to down a whole bottle, but you aren't going to harm yourself if you do. Plus, red wine is packed with resveratrol that can help ward off everything from heart disease to diabetes.
So do yourself a favor and inform that nosy neighbor that you take your wine by the bottle -- not the thimble. Tell her that next time, lunch is at your house -- and there'll be plenty of vino on the menu.
