Wine diet

People who purchase wine buy and eat healthier foods than beer drinkers do. Danish researchers analyzed 3.5 million purchases from nearly 100 supermarkets over six months, categorizing shoppers as "wine only," "beer only," "mixed," or "nonalcohol" buyers. Wine drinkers favored a Mediterranean diet (olives, produce, poultry, and low-fat cheese and milk), while beer buyers bought more sausages, chips, butter or margarine, and soft drinks. These findings may partly explain wine's link to reduced heart disease and cancer risk versus that of beer. But doctors also attribute wine's health benefits to its antioxidants and to the fact that people tend to drink wine with meals, a glass or two at a time, while beer is often consumed with snacks.
