Episode 2: Here’s to your Health….with Wine.

Mar 1, 2018

You may have read the recent headlines promising longevity to those who consume wine- or you began toasting to your health after you read about all the 100 year-old Cannonau drinkers in Sardinia. Maybe you adopted wine as a health elixir back when the French Paradox came out. Either way, it’s hard to escape the idea that wine somehow makes life better for some. Still, it has calories, and there are dangers lurking when the big “M” is not observed: moderation. In this week’s episode Gina and Julie look at where the calories in wine come from, we talk about magical resveratrol, and we turn a skeptical eye to the villain du jour- sulfites.
