We have already stated several times what the benefits of red wine are. In addition to containing polyphenols from the grape, which are antioxidants, being good for memory and offering us doses of well-being, now it is also an ally against prostate cancer.
This is confirmed by a study in which urologists have shown that red wine can reduce the risk of prostate cancer. However, white wine can increase the risk of suffering from it.
So their research found that the moderate consumption of wine by the men who underwent the study did not increase the risk of prostate cancer. But it is important to note that the results varied significantly according to the colour of the wine.
White wine drinkers faced a slight increase in the risk of prostate cancer. And the men who drank red wine, always in a moderate way, had a significant 12% decrease in the risk of suffering from this type of cancer.
It is not the first time that wine is related to the improvement of various types of cancers and hence doctors would like to go deeper into this topic, since there were contradictory global studies.
When differentiating between types of alcoholic beverages and types of consumption, specifically red wine, in moderate or very low consumption, it turned out that it can significantly reduce the risk of suffering some cancers.
In addition, another study published in the journal Cancer Science showed that resveratrol, a chemical found in red wine but not in white wine, can increase the effectiveness of radiation to destroy prostate cancer cells.
What is clear is that one of the major conclusions is that the level of prevention and reduction of this disease depends on the type of beverage consumed. Not all alcoholic beverages produce the same result then, as the researchers saw.
