Life style habits such as alcohol consumption and physical activity in relation to serum apoB / apoA-I ratio amongst 64-year-old women with varying degrees of glucose tolerance
Alcohol is always a hot topic when it comes to health. In general, almost all the studies looking at red wine intake of moderate amount (up to 1/2 bottle / day) show a positive benefit. This study is no different, although they did not look at type of alcohol consumed. Of note in this study was that alcohol intake above one glass per day was needed to show a positive effect.
Also, this article had an interesting finding; exercise “leading to sweating” had a positive effect. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the term “leading to sweating” used, but it gives us a real good idea of what level was needed. Walking in many cases is probably not enough. So, try jogging on the treadmill holding a glass of red wine.
