The red wine bottle has been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons, and it’s time we talked about why it’s such a big deal.
Editor’s Picks Red wine glasses are not just for showing off, but for eating Red wine glass isn’t just for looking good.
They’re also great for eating, and for drinking.
But they’re not a health-and-safety issue, a study finds.
And they aren’t just some kind of party accessory.
“They are not healthy for your body,” said Dr. Steven T. Brown, professor of medicine at the University of Washington and co-director of the Obesity Research Center at the school.
“There’s no medical benefit to drinking them.
They are just one of those things that people are looking for in a healthful drink.”
Brown, who has studied red wine for decades, said he’d be shocked if a red wine didn’t make an appearance in any cocktail.
“When you look at the recipes, there’s not a lot of ingredients that are really appealing to the consumer,” he said.
Brown added that red wine’s ability to be consumed as a food, a drink and as a beverage — a combination of both — can lead to a healthier body weight and better overall health.
“I think you’re going to see a lot more of it,” Brown said.
The red wine trend in popular culture, from the classic “Dr. Zhivago” and “The Hangover” to the Netflix show “House of Cards,” is not a healthy trend.
There’s not really any science to support that, according to Brown, but studies have shown that the consumption of red wine has been associated with increased risk of obesity, heart disease and cancer.
“Red wine consumption has been shown to increase your risk of being overweight and obesity,” he told ESPN.
“If you’re overweight and you consume red wine, it is likely you’re also at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
It’s a risk factor.”
Brown said red wine consumption is actually associated with reduced risk of certain cancers.
But when it comes to health, the research shows the risk of death for the average person is only 1 percent.
The National Institutes of Health said that the research did not support the idea that red wines are the culprit in the rise in obesity.
“While red wine may be a healthfully high-calorie beverage, it does not appear to be a cause of the increased mortality associated with overweight and overweight in adults, or of the higher risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease,” the institute said in a statement.
“The evidence is not conclusive that red and white wine have any health benefits.”
The association between red wine and obesity is more recent, though.
Brown said studies have been done on red wine in recent years and the data is inconclusive.
“There’s evidence that red is a risk for obesity,” Brown told ESPN in 2017.
“But there is also evidence that it’s a significant factor in the development of type 2 [diabetes] and that the increased consumption of fruit, whole grains, nuts, and vegetables in the U.S. has resulted in a reduction in the prevalence of type 1 diabetes in the population.”
Brown added, “If we want to prevent Type 2 diabetes in our country, then we need to consume less red wine.”
In a statement, a spokesperson for the American Beverage Association said, “It is important to understand that red was not used in the ancient world to increase weight, and the evidence that shows this is strong.
Red wine does not cause weight gain and there are many other beverages that do not increase weight or cause weight loss.”
“The best way to consume red is to consume a wine of the highest quality and quantity,” the statement continued.
