An Apple a Day: Wine Gets a Good Wrap, but Addiction Professionals Don't Buy It

Share Article

Old research shows a glass of wine a day has become notably healthy, benefiting the heart with its natural nutrients and antioxidants. However, new research shows that even doctors avoid recognizing this kind of approach towards an able body, considering that there are still risks anytime alcohol is involved. Healthy alternatives, especially for those who suffer from alcohol addiction, need to be taught.

Professionals at Norelapse.org are reluctant to advise patients of the health benefits of very casual wine or beer drinking because even a justification like "antioxidants" can send a true addict into a spiral of addiction. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is chock full of alcohol treatment programs nationwide that all use programs discouraging even casual drinking.

A glass of wine a day has become notably healthy, benefiting the heart with its natural nutrients and antioxidants. But even health experts avoid recognizing this kind of approach towards an able body, considering that there are still risks anytime alcohol is involved. The American Heart Association still refuses to recommend moderate alcohol consumption, listing the dangers of alcohol, alcoholism included, and pointing out that the same beneficial components found in wine can also be found in grapes and red grape juice. They go on to state "No direct comparison trials have been done to determine the specific effect of wine or other alcohol on the risk of developing heart disease or stroke".

The amount of alcohol anyone can drink safely, greatly varies, depending on many factors including age, gender, weight and genetics and because of this doctors avoid encouraging that daily glass for fear that those even drinking moderately could end up taking it too far. The old glass of wine a day adage isn't even an option for someone suffering from alcohol addiction and it is critical to learn alternatives when seeking a nutritional savvy lifestyle. Being active and in shape are essential, especially when struggling with alcoholism.
