For Good Health in Moderation

Wine has been the centerpiece of many health studies, and may be a beneficial part of our diet when enjoyed in moderation. Note that the keyword here is 'moderation' because too much can do major damage to the liver.

We've lost good friends and family members who were too fond of the fruit of the vine due to liver damage - and who died decades before their time.
