Does wine fight cancer?  Heart disease?  Alzheimer's disease?

We are not doctors or scientists.  We cannot tell you the answer.  But we can point you to a number of places where you can gather information to help you with your own decision.  Note also that in all the studies we have seen MODERATE drinking has the best results.

You can find further information about the relationship between wine and health at:
