Should I Start Drinking Red Wine?

I'll be turning 21 very soon and I am fully aware of the benefits of drinking a glass of red wine and alcohol each day. Should I start drinking it if it is available to me? The only thing is, I've tasted alcohol before and it's nasty stuff!

Re: Should I Start Drinking Red Wine?

RiceBoy,

If wine tastes nasty to you, you shouldn't force yourself to drink it. That's my opinion. It's not the most important thing you can do to be healthy. If you eat a healthy diet, avoid stress and get enough exercise, you won't need any wine. Wine may have some good antioxidents but you can get all the antioxidents you need by eating a wide variety of plant foods like fruit and vegetables.

Great post.
If you do eventually get a taste for alcohol (my parents are beginner wine/beer connoisseurs), a glass of wine a night is a great decision instead of say, a rum and coke. There are so many types of wine out there, too!

I also thinking drinking a small glass of red wine is good health wise after you turn 21 but I do not like the taste of alcohol either. Instead I drink a nightly cup of hot green tea or some herbal tea.
