You’re probably seen, over the years, research touting the benefits of “moderate” red wine drinking. Well, besides the American public often having a different definition of “moderate” from the scientific community, these bits of research not mentioning that many of the benefits may also be available from other sources, etc., it sounds like red wine in particular, or even moderate drinking in general, may be good, right?

Well, of course not to someone who has a drinking problem, or who may be near the point of crossing that “invisible line.”

It turns out that even “moderate” drinking, on a regular enough basis, can be damaging. In drinking that the researchers defined as “moderate,” can have brain effects that add up over time.
