"Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities" The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy, 5:23. Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) (who claimed the discovery of vaccination and pasteurisation) said that wine was by far the best anaesthetic and analgesic on the planet (he was also renowned oenologue - a wine scientist).
I love, ABSOLUTELY LOVE reading things hundreds, or thousands of years old that support my way of life. If you didn't know, I've upped my intake of fermented foods, and wine. I may need to enjoy my wine a tad less, but I do know that it's antioxidant effects combined with it's uhhmmm...calming effects are a magic combo for me.
