Wine in hampers could benefit asthma sufferers
Published on 27/09/2011

Individuals may have an additional reason to appreciate wine given as a gift in hampers.

A new study carried out by Danish specialists has found that a small glass of wine a few times a week could prevent asthma from developing.

Research by experts from the Bispebjerg Hospital in Denmark found that a few small drinks each week may reduce the risk of developing the condition.

Presented at a conference in Amsterdam, the results of the experiment involving nearly 20,000 subjects indicated that very few of those who occasionally consumed alcohol had the breathing condition, while those who never drank and heavy drinkers at greater risk.

The hospital's Sofie Lieberoth said: "By examining all the factors linked with the development of asthma, we can understand more about what causes the condition and how to prevent it."

A further study has indicated that coffee, which may also feature in hampers, could reduce the risk of women developing depression if it is drunk in moderation.
