Good News for Red Wine and Grapes

My sentiments exactly, could just be the grapes

Red wine is back in the news and this time its relationship affects how the body burns fat.  Most of the benefits of red wine has been related to  lower rates of heart disease found in the French population – a.k.a the French Paradox.  But this time, it’s back to obesity rates and here the French shine too – they are low. White wine is not mentioned here, but eating red grapes might be worth a shot.  The study was done on mice, so caution should be taken here as to whether it applies to humans.  Also how much wine was not mentioned – so moderation is of utmost importance here.  I would stick to consuming more red grapes until more is known about the wine dosage, just to be on the safe side.
