Got A Sore Throat Or Cough…Survey Says, “Drink More Wine!”
I know I'm not the only one that has been hit with the nasty cold that has been going around. The nicest weekend that we've had so far, I got pretty sick and all I could do was binge-watch Netflix while blowing my nose 1 million times. I did get to catch up on all my shows but I also had a tough time talking. When you talk on the radio for a job...that makes life fun.
I wish someone would have sent me this article though before I got sick because this may have helped me NOT get sick.
According to Maxim.com, "wine is a fantastic disinfectant for bad mouth germs".
Way back when in 1988, a study examined the antibacterial properties of carbonated drinks, wine, beer, skim milk, and water, and each beverage was infused with infectious bacterial like salmonella, E. coli, and shigella. The wine had the least amount of live bacteria after two days, meaning it's actually an effective disinfectant and bacteria can't survive in it. - Maxim.com
Not saying that you should never go to the Doctor if you are feeling horrible but I am thinking that we should be putting a few more wine parties on our Google calendars...because it is for our health. 😉
