Which Is Better: Wine or Beer?

November 28, 2006

1053017253.jpgThe so call French Paradox of wine and health started when an Irish doctor noted that chest pain was far less common in France than in Ireland.  Eventually epidemiological studies have shown that there is a comparatively low rate of heart disease in France despite a diet that includes plenty of butter and cheese.  Opinions by some experts have suggested that the benefit should come from the French passion of drinking red wine.

It is said that red wine may contain various substances in addition to alcohol that can prevent heart disease. Likewise the diet and lifestyle in France, especially the south, have much in common with other Mediterranean regions, which may account for some of the protection against heart disease.

But how about Beer? Beer is a common beverage easily available compared to wine.  Does it have any effect at all in protecting the heart?

A report from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, has shown that beverage choice makes no difference.  

In this study the drinking habits of more than 38,000 men over a 12-year period were examined. What the researchers found out is that moderate drinkers were 30-35% less likely to have had a heart attack than non-drinkers.  Likewise the reduction was observed among men who drank wine, beer, or spirits, and was similar for those who drank with meals and those who drank outside of meal time.

But remember…even for health reasons… for now…

If you dont drink…dont start.
