Study: Red wine may not provide any health benefits

Updated:

Sipping on a glass of Cabernet with your dinner might be good for your taste buds, but a new study suggests it may not be as beneficial for your health as once thought.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found no link between levels of the key red wine antioxidant called resveratrol and a reduced risk for cancer, heart disease or early death. Others say it's still too early, though, to put a permanent cork in your wine cabinet.

"There are a lot of studies that have really proven its benefits, so I wouldn't necessarily change their whole outlook on their way of eating just yet," said Julia Zumpano, a registered dietitian with the Cleveland Clinic.

Experts said red wine is fine in moderation, but the new data argues against adding it to your diet for health reasons alone.
