Rode wijn goed voor rokers

Twee glazen rode wijn bevatten zoveel goede stoffen dat het de nadelige effecten van roken op de aderen opheft. Dat zou blijken uit een klein, recent onderzoek dat in Griekenland werd gehouden.

Red Wine Good for Smokers, Scientists Find

VIENNA (Reuters) – If you must smoke, at least make sure you have a glass of red wine in the other hand.

Researchers said Sunday there were enough beneficial chemicals in two glasses of red wine to suspend the harmful effect that smoking one cigarette has on the functioning of arteries.

That does not prove regular red wine drinking can counteract the harm of chronic smoking, John Lekakis and Christos Papamichael of University Hospital in Athens told the annual meeting of the European Society of Cardiology.

But the finding does suggest that red wine — long seen as good for the heart when drunk in moderation — may provide clues in the hunt for new drug candidates capable of reversing smoking’s harmful effects.

The scientists used a Greek red wine, rich in chemicals known as polyphenols, for their experiment on 16 healthy volunteers. They established that alcohol was not the cause of the beneficial effect by testing an alcohol-free version, which worked just as well.

  1. Absurd. Het ene slecht product aanbevelen om de gevolgen van het andere slechte product te verkleinen.

    Beide breken de weersstand af en in deze coronatijd is dat het laatste wat we nodig hebben.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
