 Red Meat Plus Red Wine Seen as Healthy
Researchers have revealed that a combination of red meat and red wine is not just tasty, it is also healthy.

A new study on rats using red wine with red meat has shown that the drink works against some of the harmful substances produced by the meat.

These harmful chemicals released during the digestion of fat have been linked to diseases such as cancer, diabetes and Parkinson's.

For the study, rats were fed either only red meat or red meat with red wine concentrate. The wine mixture was found to reduce two toxic chemicals.

The Israeli research is not the first to commend the health benefits of red wine. Previous studies credit it with a reduction in the risk of heart disease and cancer.

Redcliffs butcher Brian Jennings said he was feeling fit and healthy with a diet that included red wine with meat.

"But I always eat broccoli and things like that that are supposed to be anti-cancer stuff," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him, as saying.

"When I started butchering 25 years ago, red meat had a bad name because of the fat but it's only in the last 10 years it's been promoted as a health food.

"We trim it a lot harder these days," he added.

The study appears in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
