ABC News Online have published [an interesting article]( that begins:

> International and local research groups say the long-term health benefits of drinking a glass of red wine a day may have been exaggerated.

So, it may be that the old ‘a glass of wine a day is healthy’ may be untrue.

> “There are other reasons why people might enjoy a drink and certainly if people drink at low-risk levels of course, they can enjoy their alcohol,” he said.

> “But we certainly shouldn’t be suggesting to people they can accrue health benefits by drinking alcohol.”

So, put down that glass of wine and get a glass of water.
