I read this information on a newsletter I receive from the New York Wine & Grape Foundation.
I thought I would pass it along to you. Smile...

TOOTH DECAY prevention may be yet another benefit of moderate wine consumption, according to a recent Italian study published in the American Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry and reported in The Times of India (not a traditional wine-consuming country). The research showed that both red and white wine contain some powerful germ-killing ingredients guarding against disease-causing streptococci bacteria and upper respiratory tract infections. Wine’s antibacterial properties, well known by the ancient Romans, have received relatively little attention from the modern research community, compared with other well-known benefits such as cardiovascular disease, cancer risk, and Alzheimer’s. But with this new study, that may well change.
