Many Americans Misinformed About Red Wine, Sea Salt

Many Americans Misinformed About Red Wine, Sea Salt

Everyone knows red wine is good for you, but it turns out a lot of people don’t understand that getting DRUNK off wine negates the health benefits!

A new survey revealed that while 76% of adults knew that red wine can be good for your heart, only 30% knew the American Heart Associations’s (AHA) recommended limits for daily consumption (no more than two drinks per day for men, and one for women).

The survey also found that the majority of respondents also mistakenly believe that sea salt is a low-sodium alternative to table salt.

The problem with these misconceptions is that excess drinking and too much salt can lead to a number of health problems, including heart disease.

Said AHA spokesman Dr. Gerald Fletcher, professor of medicine:

"This survey shows that we need to do a better job of educating people about the heart-health risks of overconsumption of wine, especially its possible role in increasing blood pressure."

The lesson here is this: If you here something is healthy for you (i.e. drinking red wine), RESEARCH it first! Don’t just start getting drunk off of wine! LOL!
