White wine or red wine?

Cancer is the number one disease in mortality of men and women in the world, but lung cancer is increasingly attacking the population of young adults due to various factors.

Therefore, Brock University and McMaster University in Ontario, indicated that in one study they used cells with cancer to perform epidemiological studies, where they discovered that red wine has anticancer properties, as it is a rich source of resveratrol.


White wine or red wine?

The impact was measured in both wines and it was deduced that the lung cancer cells exposed to Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Riesling, were protected by the resveratrol substance.

Both wines, reds and whites, stop the spread of lung cancer, but red wines were more effective. Red wine effectively stopped the spread of cancer cells, compared to the group that tasted white wine.


How does it protect us?

The wine is able to inhibit the growth of lung cancer cells and oncogenic potential. The hypothesis is that the total phenolic content of red wine may be responsible for these results.

Drinking a glass of red wine a day can improve oxygenation of the blood and blood pressure. So, let's take advantage of the benefits of this delicious beverage.
