Only one person in two billion will live to be 116 years old

three-fourths fullAnd the odds of that person being a red wine drinker are extraordinarily high. Maybe not extraordinarily, but we are pretty confident the odds are high. That’s right folks, wine (well red anyway) is GOOD for you and can benefit your health in all sorts of ways. Take fatty foods like French fries for instance. If you drink, say…a glass of wine while you eat them, you will actually lose weight and all your wildest dreams will come true! Amazing! You know what else is amazing? Nutmeg. Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously. You have been warned. But, seriously, while drinking wine most likely won’t shrink your waistline, it can help limit the damage fatty foods cause, and the alcohol it contains can help produce good cholesterol.

This is a totally random photoIt’s also lofty in flavonoids. This is a noid you don’t want to avoid. Did you know dueling is legal in Paraguay as long as both parties are registered blood donors? Now that I would avoid, it sounds dangerous.

So, flavonoids are a type of polyphenol which is an antioxidant which is really nothing more than a fancy term for a good cell freedom fighter. And one of the most notable members of this rebel alliance is Resveratrol (res•ver•a•trol), or as we like to call it, “The Res.” The Res is derived from several plants, notably grapes and grape seeds. Basically, the Res and all the other freedom fighters keep free radicals of The Dark Side from damaging good cells and (wait for it…wait for it…) The Res can help prevent cancer by restricting tumor growth! Wow. That almost got complicated. Thankfully, we have no shortage of Star Wars analogies to get the job done. Interesting stuff, huh?

And speaking of interesting, check this out: It was discovered on a space mission that a frog can throw up. The frog throws up its stomach first, so the stomach is dangling out of its mouth. The frog then uses its forearms to dig out all of the stomach’s contents and then swallows the stomach back down again. Now there’s a diet plan!

Need another random fact? Our wine selection was “Totally Random.” We were cruising Winco on a Sunday afternoon, when we nearly knocked over the display at the end of the frozen turkey aisle after coming across this selection from the Adelfels Winery in Santa Rosa, Calif.

We weren’t even shopping for wine. The priority was toilet paper. So, running into this bargain was totally random. The $8.99 price tag was on the high end of our unofficial cheap wine limit, but we knew we’d be taking one of these bottles home even before we read “Sweet Red Wine” on the label. This wine is sweet, but it is not “dessert wine” sweet. It would make a great table wine if you prefer your reds with intense ripe blackberry and plum flavors. The rich berry essence deepens the longer the wine is allowed to breathe.

This wine paired perfectly with Beecher’s “World’s Best” Mac & Cheese. We didn’t order it frozen from their website for two reasons. 1. They charge more than we pay the city for a month of water 2. We’re saving up to pay next month’s internet access. Ultimately, we followed the website recipe and made it at home. Make no mistake about it: This is the best mac & cheese either of us has ever eaten. Click here for the recipe.

When drinking this wine always remember: To escape the jaws of a crocodile, push your thumbs into its eyes – it will release you instantly. Note: This does not work for zombies.

On a final note, red wine has been known to prevent the common cold. What did your last doctor’s office visit or trip to the drugstore cost you? We’ll bet it was more than $8.99.
