Benefits of wine consumption in the diet. The French Paradox.
“According to Hippocrates "wine is something suited admirably to man, both in health and in sickness, if it is administered appropriately, in its just measure, according to the individual constitution”
Currently, there are many studies that claim through scientific research and epidemiological evidence that moderate consumption of wine and champagne on a regular basis and in the context of a balanced diet, contribute to reducing the incidence and mortality from cardiovascular disease.
No doubt about the benefits of moderate wine consumption during meals, and taking into account the personal circumstances of the individual (weight, age, disease, family history, etc...).
The benefits of wine consumption had their first show in France, in 1992, thanks to the study of Serge Renaud, "The paradoxe française". Under this heading it is shown, by example, as a country with cardiovascular risk similar to others developed countries have a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease to them.
Professor Renaud concluded that moderate wine consumption reduced by 20% the risk of cancer, heart attacks or vascular cerebral accidents after making a 20-year long study, analyzing the health evolution of 34,000 people aged between 40 and 60.
"The French Paradox" and "the resveratrol” have opened the door to new research.
We can not forget that the benefits of wine had prescribed by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, who said that" wine is something suited admirably to man, both in health and in sickness, if it is administered appropriately, in its just measure, according to the individual constitution".
