Sherry is Heart-Friendly

Sherry has joined Guinness and red wine on the growing list of alcoholic drinks that are good for our health when consumed in moderation.

According to scientists in Spain, a daily glass of the fortified wine controls cholesterol levels in much the same way as red wine.

The Seville University study, published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, found that sherry contained antioxidants, like those found in red wine, that reduce the occurrence of coronary artery disease. These anti- oxidants work by preventing the oxidation of low density lipoproteins, which are linked to the disease.

Juan Guerrero, one of the researchers, said: "Sherry is widely consumed, especially in Spain and the UK, and we have shown that its moderate intake decreased total cholesterol and increased high-density lipo- protein cholesterol, which is good for you, report &to=http://www.independent.co.uk' target=_blank>Independent

Researcher Juan Guerrero said: "Sherry is widely consumed, especially in Spain and the UK, and we have shown that its moderate intake decreased total cholesterol and increased HDL-cholesterol. "As a general rule, moderate consumption of red wine exerts beneficial effects for health. "In our research, the beneficial effects of red wine can be extended to sherry wines."

"As a cautionary note, it is worth keeping in mind that too much alcohol can have an adverse effect on health by increasing weight and raising blood pressure. It may affect people in different ways depending on their lifestyle and family history. "In the long term, alcohol should not be used to protect the heart.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
