You’ve probably heard that drinking wine may protect against heart disease. Now a new study shows it may save your sight.
The study was done at Howard University. The research suggests that drinking wine may prevent a common cause of blindness called macular degeneration.
More study is needed, but even if it pans out, it wouldn’t be a license to drink as much as you want. If you enjoy wine and it’s safe for you to drink, one or two glasses a day may give you the benefits without the danger.
If you’re not sure, check with your doctor.
