The implication is that 1-2 glasses of wine a day is a significant enough cutback to your normal drinking habits that your tolerance begins to drop. The implication being that your usual habits are more of 1-2 bottles or some other large volume.

Ah. Well, 1-2 glasses a day (for men)(red wine) is recommended. So, while I occasionally drink more, there's a bit of space between "healthy amount" and "so much that it's causing you problems".

I'm pretty sure the benefits from wine drinking can be found in grape juice drinking.

Sorry if I was unclear, my phone makes long answers a pain. I'm just bewildered of the notion of drinking alcohol every day.

The writers of this book:

Resveratrol: This is a flavonoid found in red wine that seems to decrease the aging of the DNA in mitochondria - the cell's energy plant. Those flavonoids act as an antioxidant, which helps reduce aging of the arteries and the immune system. Red wine especially has this benefit because it's the grape's skin that contains resveratrol, and red wine has been in contact with the skin of the grape for a longer time than has white wine (which is why it's red). To get the maximum RealAge benefits (up to 1.9 years younger), drink alcohol in moderate amounts - one to two glasses a day if you're a man, one half to one glass a day if you're a woman.

TIL another thing Nutella goes well with: Pears. Mouthgasm.

Also, I learned a good deal about the exploits of Brig. Gen. Benjamin Foulois, the first American military aviator, and one of the first proponents of US air power. A forebear to Billy Mitchel (Father of the USAF), he created the prototype squadron that formed the basis for America's fledlging AAS during WW1.

In addition to that, a bunch more about Billy Mitchel and Henry "Hap" Arnold, both major players in the development of the USAF.

That's medical advancement for ya! The book was published 6 years ago, so some things are bound to be outdated. And they are upfront about what they don't know - notice the "seems to" in the quote.

Anyway, about the daily alcohol intake, it's probably not as big of a deal as you think it is. They have this to say about it:

You also want as high an HDL [cholesterol] level possible, and at least greater than 40 [grams a day]. Increasing your HDL can be done in several ways:
. . .
· having a drink of alcohol every night (seven on Saturday night doesn't count, and avoid drinking if you have a family member who becomes angry when he/she drinks)

By the way, alcohol is a double-edged sword. In its favor, it decreases inflammation, for reasons not fully understood. But too much of it can cause aging of the immune system, perhaps by inactivating the cells that defend you. Anything over about two and a half drinks daily for men and one and a half drinks for women is a net increase in risk.


Wikipedia agrees with there being apparent benefits with the need for caution.

I didn't notice the 'seems to' as there were exact numbers ("doing this can make you live 1.9 years longer!") and stuff. Didn't seem very honest as they didn't have research backing them up, and were just extrapolating wildly.

So there seems to be benefits and there are definitely detriments, according to that wiki-page. And there is, in my opinion, reason to suspect the alcohol industry has had a hand in making those benefits seem like they exist.

I don't know what sources they used, if any. Do you? I'd rather not extrapolate wildly about how the authors went about deciding on that recommendation.

Kewangji wrote:So there seems to be benefits and there are definitely detriments, according to that wiki-page.


The detriments are almost all associated with heavy drinking, and, thus, are not applicable to 1-2 glasses of wine per day. Just read down the page. And the "seeming" benefits are numerous.

You're saying someone conducted a proper scientific survey that would likely take years and just … you know … failed to mention this to the public, while sharing it with Michael F. Roizen and Mehmet C. Oz?

I should also mention that Roizen believes that one can live to 120 with the life quality of a 45-year old. (http://www.cleveland.com/medical/index. ... ngevi.html) It's not just me accusing him of extrapolating wildly.

I did read the entire page, and I clicked lots of links, and read them. I missed this thing before, and I'll have to admit that it seems legit: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17159008
