If you're drinking that Cote du Rhone for the pleasure and the flavor, then by all means go right ahead. But if you think you're doing something good for your heart--because of all those "Red Wine Is GOOD For You" headlines you've read then put down your glass. A new study from a Swedish University says that red wine is good for you, and could reduce the risk of heart disease, but only if you have a certain genetic makeup--or genotype.
And guess what? It seems that only 15% of us have it. And if you don't have it--if you're in the giant 85% majority--all that moderate red wine imbibing isn't doing your heart a bit of good. Unless you're having a glass with that special someone--then a few sips may well be good for your heart after all.
