Wine consumption and WHO
“Use is not abuse”
Keeping in mind that there is a broad consensus in the fight against excessive consumption and that abstention from alcohol is preferred for people with problems, Pierre-Louis Teissedre defends a balanced scientific approach to the benefits and risks of the effects of wine on health .
“If I consume it in moderation during the meal, wine brings pleasure, flavor and emotion. It is essential for the joy of living. When you are deprived of it, it is a loss”.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as a complete state of physical, mental and social well-being. It is not just the absence of disease and infirmity. We have to take into account all dimensions of health. This includes well-being, of which little is said in studies “underlines the expert, who then continues by affirming that “we must preserve and enhance the consumption of wine in moderation.
Moderate wine consumption contributes to our well-being and therefore to our health”.
