Herv, just Google 'Red wine without sulfites' and a gazillion websites show up. Here's an example:

EcoVine Sulfite Free Organic Wine Club

Join the club & they'll send you the wine. Sounds good to me!

I have a glass of red wine every day!! Seems to help clean out arteries. Maybe an excuse to have wine hehehe. But really about fried foods. Its the oil its cooked in thats harmful. Take any of the grease from sausages, bacon, fatty meats, deep fried potatoes and put it in the refridgerator for a couple of hours, and you will see the solid fat you are putting into stomach and arteries.(Even just set it out for a while and it will turn hard). Put a glass of olive oil in fridge, and you will see the difference even though both are saturated fat!! Not that I don't cheat once in a while, but with stents in my body, I want to stick around a little while longer. I'm surprised that with all us older people,(speaking for myself) here in The Villages, that they don't have more restaurants that concentrate on more healthier cooking. Thats why we cook a lot at home, and when I cheat, we go out. BUT, to each his own!! I know what I have to do to stay healthy. Bon Apetete everyone!!

It's interesting how many of our commonly held beliefs about some food's nutritional value, or it's effect to our health have changed over the years.

I don't know if the indications that it is the type of oil used and not the frying of food itself that is the determining factor to it's health safety, but it's something to think about.

I'm trusting less and less, (based on experience), all of these supposed scientific studies that tell us what foods are good and bad for us. That's just my personal view of it...

Whatever happened to preparing our food,...thanking God for it and trusting Him to bless it, then we eat.....I know, not intelligent enough....whatever.

An interesting question for me is, What is the motivation behind the study,...who is funding the study.

The motivation? How about just plain old curiosity and thirst for knowledge. Exploding myths is a time honored scientific pursuit.

If "popular wisdom" on a subject is flawed, wouldn't you want to know about it?

Yes, exactly, and if it's true science, the results should be consistent if given the same set of variables each time...but who do you believe?.....Eggs are bad for you, then, eggs aren't as bad for you as thought,...on and on it goes...So much of it is just "news cycle" driven BS.

I'm all for trying to improve the lifestyle....All I'm saying is I don't trust all these news stories and supposed scientific studies to be true,...they contradict themselves too much. I just want to take them with a grain of salt. (pun intended) I'm a skeptic. There is money behind every one of these so called studies and I'm sure that they're not all un-biased.

Are we supposed to just accept all these studies as truth just because they're printed in a newspaper or on TV?

Good points. Early in my training, it was emphasized that the results of a well-designed and executed study should be able to be duplicated by a follow-up study similarly designed and run. Unless the results of study were confirmed by subsequent studies, the results of the first study were simply points of interest needing to be confirmed or refuted by subsequent studies. And the source of funding for a study also should be investigated before taking the results to heart. Remember the studies done by the tobacco companies stating that smoking isn't related to the onset of lung cancer.

Unfortunately, there are untold numbers of news stories that take these unconfirmed results and trumpet them as factual. This leads to confusion and, sometimes worse, action taken that may be counterproductive or dangerous.

Well said. Very well said indeed.

It is good to hear folks share their pride in their ethincity. We should all do so as it honors our parents.

IMHO all things equal "genes" are the main determinant of longevity. Indeed the Greeks were correct in advisng all things in moderation. Clearly heavy drinking, smoking are very bad for you, as is a daily diet of process meats. but too many folks /scientist /doctor, etc go overboard.

A Harvard study some 20 years ago determined thatthree types of people existed. those who excreted cholesterol, those who compensated for it and those that stored cholestrol, the latter having the probleEat in moderation, exercise three times a week, love yourself and others and most of all laugh loudly and often...then pray like ----that God see's your efforts at being healthy.

Finally remember Erma Bombeck's famous quote " Just think minutes before the titanic went down some women waved off the dessert cart"

I read the article hoping I could find an excuse to dive into some fried chicken and fries at Bubba's Swamp house. I was disappointed to read olive oil or sunflower oil. I got a feeling Bubba never heard of those oils.
