I get a lot of email from people who don't really drink wine but who want to, in a way, "force themselves" to start drinking wine for the antioxidant benefits. To me that's a very interesting way to look at ingesting a food item.

I guess it's really no different than forcing yourself to eat fish, if you aren't a fish eater, for its fish oil benefits.

One would hope that in only a few weeks the person would actually enjoy drinking the wine smile

I have said before that I feel it is a fool's errand to drink wine primarily for any health benefits offered.

Ah but how about prune juice? Don't people drink that primarily for its health benefits?

The health benefits of red wine have always been debatable. For some people, one glass of red wine each day is a valuable part of a healthy diet, while others think wine is somewhat overrated. However, there is a fine line between moderate and excessive intake.
