Just saw the following and thought you might be interested.
I think I'm going to ramp up my on-going Red Wine program. Very Happy

Looks like healthy stuff.  Just do it before bed and driving and all should  be well.

Lots of anti-oxidants in red wine. Don't know if it would build muscle but it's definitely healthy. One glass wouldn't affect driving. Two or three, best not drive.

We normally do our wine drinking in the evening and especially before bed.  It also helps with sleep.

For years, German doctors have recommended beer and wine.  The beer is without additives and considered healthy.  It is even recommended for pregnant women.  Wine is another thing doctors have recommended.  In the early days, one could get a Doctor's prescription for wine and the insurance paid for it.  That is no longer the case.
The point is that in America we have been brain-washed to think that anything containing alcohol is bad for you.  Concentrating on alcohol and cigarettes has blinded people to the hazards of artery-clogging foods.  Red meat is a known killer.  I think we have finally reached the point where we let our bodies tell us what is okay and what is not.  Medical opinion changes often.  We were told that eggs were not good.  Then we were told that eggs were good.  Butter is another one of those things that has fllip-flopped.  Butter substitutes are harmful while pure butter is good.  As with everything, moderation is the key.

The problem with red meat is in the way cattle is fed. Being penned up and fed grain so that steaks are marblized makes for unhealthy fat in cows, which is passed on to people. The benefits of grass-feeding animals has been known for a long time here, as have the health benefits of wine and natural beer. You just need to know where to look and who to listen to.

Just Annie.

Ann, I agree.  The problem with forced-fed penned-up animals is not only unfair to the animals, but also bad for the consumer.  Was watching a TV program on the raising of chickens where 80,000 chicks are produced every day.  That's not the problem.  The problem comes in how they are handled after birth.  "Freilaufende Hüner" (free-running hens) are the best.  The eggs they produce are considered "Bio" biologically or ecologically produced.  The caged forced-fed animals is the problem for the consumer.  Antibiotics in animal food often means that when a person becomes ill, the anti-biotic doesn't work.  Many people die each year by disease from forced-fed animals.  I'm not a scientist, I'm just relaying information reported, however it doesn't take a scientist to observe the treatment of animals.  Common sense can tell you that something is wrong with this un-natural process and that the meat will be affected. The food animals eat can even be detected in the taste.  A simple example is that if cows eat grass where wild garlic is present, one can taste the garlic in the milk.  With pasteurilization that is not detected, however if you get the milk directly from the cow, you will taste it.  It is just an example of how important feed is to the animal and the eventual consumer.
