The French Paradox

Wine and infarct

At the end of the "70", speaking of the beneficial effect of wine on health seemed to be nonsense. And yet it already existed, in international medical and scientific literature, some very well documented reports suggesting that wine, in moderation, could be beneficial to health.

Drunk moderately, about a 100ml glass per meal (usually 2 to 4 glasses a day) wine is beneficial to health, reducing by nearly 40% the risk of myocardium infarct and by nearly 25% cerebral vascular thrombosis.

Wine seems to liquefy the blood, reducing the risk of platelets aggregation and therefore of coagulation.

Wine must be drunk regularly with each meal, to avoid a higher risk of coagulation if one stops suddenly.
