Dear Dr. Roach: I have go through about the advantages of acquiring a glass of wine for each working day for women of all ages, or two eyeglasses for gentlemen. Can you be sure to explain to me how your health and fitness will be impacted if you have much more? My spouse generally beverages a bottle of wine a night, and if we go out he will have cocktails as nicely.


Dear Anon.: I desire no one had ever claimed that a glass of wine a day is wholesome. It may be real, but professionals disagree.
