Wine drinkers live more healthily than beer drinkers. Four researchers from
the Danish National Institute of Public Health collected 3.5 million grocery
receipts from 98 stores during the period September 30, 2002, to February
2003. They spent the next four years analysing the data. The results showed
that wine buyers make healthier product choices.
"Our results confirm international studies which show that wine drinkers
are more inclined to eat fruits, vegetables and fish and rarely use saturated
fats, compared to those who like other kinds of alcoholic beverages,"
said Erik Skovenborg and Morten Groenbaek.
