“Drink Wine in Moderation”

Research shows that the occasional glass of wine has numerous health benefits. The polyphenols—resveratrol, anthocyanins, and catechins—are the highest-profile antioxidants found in wine, and are much-touted for their health effects. But there is a startling federal report that 30 million Americans are driving drunk and another 10 million are driving drugged. Although it varies, in some states, drunk and drugged drivers are over 20 percent, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Unfortunately, younger drivers are more likely to drive while impaired. Sadly, over ten thousand were killed by drunk drivers in 2009 and drugged drivers caused one in three car accident deaths. If someone is going to drink, then do not drive. Do not risk the life and limb of innocent people because of stupidity and irresponsibility. I applaud parents, community leaders, MADD, police, and the judicial system who fight against driving while drunk or drugged. According to a review published in Nutrients, resveratrol, for instance, “is active in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases by neutralizing free oxygen radicals and reactive nitrogenous radicals; it penetrates the blood-brain barrier and, thus, protects the brain and nerve cells. It also reduces platelet aggregation and so counteracts the formation of blood clots or thrombi.”
