You may have heard your doctor mention a time or two, having a glass of wine a day isn’t so bad for you after all. In fact, latest studies have exposed the many health benefits of drinking wine. Findings suggests that wine consumed moderately (specifically of the red varietals) can promote a longer lifespan, improve mental health, provide benefits to the heart and protect against certain cancers. What is considered a moderate consumption of wine, you may ask?
