This review gives a critical compilation of both the beneficial and the detrimental effects of wine consumption on oral cavity cancer. The health benefits of a moderate consumption of wine have been extensively studied during the last few decades. Some studies have shown a protective relationship between moderate drinking and several diseases including oral cavity cancer (OCC).

The aim of the current study was to evaluate the sponsorship bias in observational alcohol studies by focusing on various health outcomes. Industry funding…
Findings from this study demonstrate a sustained benefit of long-term low dose resveratrol supplementation on overall cognitive function. In this small randomized placebo-controlled trial, 129 post-menopausal women received either a placebo or a low dose of resveratrol twice daily for 12 months. The results showed that regular consumption of resveratrol enhanced the cognitive functions in the participants, which could be partly attributed to an improved blood flow in the brain. The authors concluded that resveratrol might be suitable as an…
A recent large European study examined whether different combinations of lifestyle factors are associated with years lived without chronic diseases. The results showed that the higher the number of healthy lifestyle habits, the longer was the lifespan without major chronic diseases (type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, cancer, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure, dementia). Comparing the best with the worst lifestyle score was associated with approximately nine additional years without chronic diseases. The longest life span free…
