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.
Since wine may prevent damage to the blood vessels in your heart and brain, it may also do the same to your eyes.
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.
