ABC News Online have published [an interesting article](http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200603/s1605308.htm) that begins:
> International and local research groups say the long-term health benefits of drinking a glass of red wine a day may have been exaggerated.
So, it may be that the old ‘a glass of wine a day is healthy’ may be untrue.
> “There are other reasons why people might enjoy a drink and certainly if people drink at low-risk levels of course, they can enjoy their alcohol,” he said.
> “But we certainly shouldn’t be suggesting to people they can accrue health benefits by drinking alcohol.”
So, put down that glass of wine and get a glass of water.
