Wine May Help Keep Liver Healthy

Nicholas Bakalar in The New York Times, June 10, 2008
Recent reports suggest that red wine is a potent force in increasing lifespan, and a new study offers still more good news for wine drinkers. A glass a day, whether white or red, may reduce the risk of developing the nation’s most common liver disorder, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Then the bad, or at least moderate, news.
“While one glass a day seems helpful, these data do not support the use of larger amounts of alcohol,” said Dr. Jeffrey B. Schwimmer, the senior author [of one of the studies] and an associate professor of gastroenterology at the University of California, San Diego.

For your glass a day, I recommend C. H. Berres Impulse Riesling.
