Vision health and Red Wine

Drinking red wine is one of my favorite things to do.  Here's a good reason to follow in my footsteps.
Drinking a glass of red wine a day helps to lower bad cholesterol, reduces the risk of dangerous blood clots and helps to prevent Alzheimer's disease.
A compound found in  wine called Resveratrol, helps to block out and reverse the growth of abnormal blood vessels in the retina that leads to blindness in older adults.
1,000 mg of Omega 3s also block eye-cell damage that leads to macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in adults over 55.

Don't forget to drink your daily glass of wine....
