Drinking red wine dates back to 4,000 BC in Mesopotamia and the coastal areas of the Caspian Sea. It was primarily enjoyed by the upper classes but it was later promoted as part of an overall healthy diet. Margaret River wineries are only some of the places people get to enjoy wine. It is universally enjoyed throughout the world, and much more so because of the many health benefits it has to offer.
These health benefits include a longer lifespan, lower cholesterol levels, anti-aging effects, protection against certain cancers and conditions (breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, diabetes, dementia, blinding diseases) and improved mental health. However, these benefits are only applicable when the substance is consumed in moderation. Consuming too much might instead lead to these problems and other dangers.
