Good news for wine lovers: red wine has yet another health benefit. Researchers found that a daily glass of red wine can reduce the risk of lung cancer by about 13 percent – at least in men. The magic ingredient seems to be the tannins, which have powerful antioxidant properties.
Take action: The finding doesn't mean that you should start guzzling more wine to protect your body from cancer. If you're a guy, two glasses of red wine per day, and one if you're a woman, are enough to reap the benefits. The best safeguard against lung cancer is still to snuff out those cigarettes for good.
