Another (healthy) excuse to drink wine
Tuesday, March 3, 2009 @ 12:14 AM


So we all know that red wine is good for the heart right? Well, new studies show that it also protects against Esophageal Cancer. I am sure you are like me and go, "what is Esophageal Cancer? Well, no matter, another excuse to drink me some wine!" Well, this is what Yahoo News says:

Barrett's esophagus, which affects about 5 percent of the population, occurs when heartburn or acid reflux permanently damages the lining of the esophagus. People with this condition are 30 to 40 times more likely to develop a type of esophageal cancer called esophageal adenocarcinoma. In the last 30 years, the incidence of esophageal cancer in the United States has increased 500 percent.

So go ahead, drink and be merry and lets fight heart disease AND Esophageal Cancer together!

Cheers!
