Thank you for adding the line about limiting consumption to one glass. By "at a time", I assume you meant to say "in any 24 hour period."

Your readers should also know that a "glass" is between 4 and 5 oz of wine, depending on the percent of alcohol in the wine.

Most restaurants serve at least 8 ounces in a glass. Some "glasses" contain 12 ounces or more. One of those "glasses" per day will increase the risk of cancer (especially breast cancer) by almost 50%.

If you are serious about your health, pour 1/2 cup of water into your usual wine glass and see how much is thought to have heart health benefits. If you routinely drink more than that, cut back. If you can't cut your consumption back to one small glass, quit drinking entirely. The benefits of moderate drinking do not outweigh the harm done by excessive amounts of alcohol.
