Good News Day – Wine Before Bed Makes You lose weight!

If This is true then I should be drinking more. Maybe I am not drinking enough.

According to a new Study by scientists from Washington State University and Harvard this is true. Apparently the chemical resveratrol works to stop fat cells from gaining even more fat. According to these brilliant people 2 glasses which is equal to about half a bottle – a day can help beat obesity by 70%.
Who am I to argue.

The wine calories helps you keep full so that you are less likely to reach out for those fattening after dinner snacks. Might be cause you have passed out on the couch.

Now the amazing thing is they are not the only ones saying this. The University of Denmark have found that those who drink wine every day (Me) had slimmer waistlines than those who didn’t.
I wonder if I drink more my waist line will get even slimmer. Need to put it to the test.

As You know I am a Dr Oz fan, also I have 3 friends that are suffering from the attack of Cancer on their bodies, so I found this quite amazing.

1. There has been a study in Australia that has come up with an 82% chance of reduction in Ovarian Cancer. (One of my dear friends has this terrible cancer). This comes about by drinking at least 4 cups of Oolong tea or Green tea a day. They found the tea has chemical compounds that can destroy the cancer cell when come in contact directly.

2. Liver cancer risk can be reduced by 50% by drinking at least 3 cups of coffee a day. I know amazing. Coffee has an anti oxidant and anti inflammatory compounds that will starve cancer cells so they are unable to grow. Drink your coffee black and at least 24 fluid oz a day.

3. A Harvard study found that a certain fruit can reduce the risk of you contracting breast cancer by 40%. Compounds in PEACHES can inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells and their ability to spread.
After 12 days the researchers saw that mice fed with high levels of polyphenols (found in peaches) had tumors that grew less and without much of the blood vessel formation that can help cancer cells spread to other parts of the body. The tumors in those mice also had less evidence of enzymes involved in the spread and invasion of cancer.

You need to have at least 2 servings of peaches per week, Frozen or Fresh.

Prevention is better than cure, so just make sure you take these preventative every day of your life and your chances of contracting cancer or any disease for that matter is significantly reduced.
