Wine Niche: Salud!

Is wine healthy?

This has been an ongoing debate for as long as I can remember.

If you watch the news, it pops up every other month as a short little segment saying this doctor did a study that shows wine helps fight cancer. Another says wine help fights heart disease; another shows a picture of a 100-year-old woman having a glass of wine saying she has had a glass a day since she was 12.

I have spent the last couple of months trying to find the truth to these questions. For the most part, there is some truth that wine can be good for you. 

But what not everyone mentions is that it can be bad if abused. 

Wine has many antioxidants, but the body does not use all of them. These antioxidants come mostly from the skin of the grape, which for the most part is thrown away after the wine making process. A lot of these antioxidants are believed to fight cancer.
