One more reason to drink wine

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

My dr actually told me to drink more alcohol, because it raises the levels of healthy cholesterol (HDL) - and mine tend to be too low.

Then I saw this article on SparkPeople:

Yup, there's evidence that an alcoholic drink or two a few times a week may help prevent/counter osteoporosis. (Not that I have that, but......)

So, here's to our health!!!!!

There is the link. And it didn't matter which type of alcohol.

    Any alcohol? Or red versus white?

I'll admit, I like white wines that are light and a little fruity, but not too sweet - though I like moscato, too. Not spumante - but champagne and prosecco. Mmmmmm, little bubbles!

    I also saw an article where it helps prevent rheumatoid arthritis.

    I should probably add that I drink maybe one or two glasses of wine or prosecco a MONTH, and that's it. I had liver parasites in Africa, and, well, you get used to not drinking when the dr tells you it will kill you.

So I'm trying to get used to a glass of wine with dinner - I tend to forget to drink it, even when my calories for the day are low!
