A tasty reason to appreciate wine

❝ We already know that wine is one of the greatest things in life, but did you know that it could actually keep you from getting sick? Yup, apparently wine is a fantastic disinfectant for bad mouth germs, which is just another reason why we should all be drinking more of the good stuff.

❝ In the study, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, researchers discovered that the acidity and alcohol concentration in wine isn’t what’s responsible for the antibacterial properties, as was previously believed. Instead, it’s due to a number of organic compounds found in both red and white wines.

The researchers isolated the compounds — lactic, malic, succinic, and tartaric acids — and after neutralizing their acidity, found that they kill 99.9 percent of dental bacterial and germs that cause sore throats.

Like the song says…
