Ten Myths About the Mediterranean Diet

Drinking as much wine as you want is heart healthy.

Wine certainly does have unique health benefits for your heart. However, drinking in moderation is the key. Residents on the Mediterranean coast don’t actually drink as much alcohol as you may think. Enjoying a glass of wine with dinner is common, but downing two to three glasses is not.

Frequently drinking more than one to two glasses of wine can actually be bad for your heart (not to mention your decision-making). To stay on the healthy side of the fence, enjoy a glass of wine with your meal a few times a week.
