Welp, if this is true, I hope you're ok with me sticking around for a while because I'm not going to croak any time soon!
According to new research, a diet containing wine, beer, and chocolate is linked with lower rates of death due to cardiovascular disease or cancer! That's right: our guilty pleasures are GOOD for us!
The researchers say it comes down to a diet rich in antioxidants and focusing on foods that are anti-inflammatory. Inflammation in the body makes it more difficult to fight off disease and maintain good health. Eating foods that prevent inflammation, or don’t exacerbate, it are key. Wine, beer and chocolate all fit the bill.
