Super Duper Red Wine Liver Cleanse!

Don't believe the bunk.

Dr. Carolyn Dean calls bullshit on the wine industry!:

Here’s the scientific contradiction of the week: Two glasses of red wine EACH day can help clear up fatty liver – the most common side-effect of alcoholism!

Now, red wine might be a better choice than a bottle of rum – thanks to the presence of resveratrol (a wonderful antioxidant and antifungal). Still, I wouldn’t encourage anybody with fatty liver – especially an alcoholic – to gulp down 3.5 liters of wine a week.

But that’s exactly what was recommended by Science Daily, in their May 13 article, Two Glasses Of Wine A Day Helps To Reduce Quantity Of Fat In Liver.

As Dr. Roby Mitchel said, when he sent me this article, "This is irresponsible journalism." Honestly, some people will take it seriously. So Let’s Clear Something up Here…

Wine is a super-concentrated glass of fructose (fruit sugar). Fructose feeds the yeast in your body. And, as we’ve been talking about this week, yeast release up to 178 different toxins as their natural waste product.

And where do those toxins go? That’s right… They go to your liver for processing. Can you guess where all the excess fructose that the yeast doesn’t consume ends up? Yep. Liver again.

The liver stores some sugar away. The rest it turns into fat (as triglycerides). Therefore, if you’re consuming too much sugar, your liver will produce too much fat. Too much fat then clogs up the liver. That’s why we are seeing teenagers, living off high-fructose corn syrup, with livers that look like a 50-year-old alcoholic.

I can’t help but think that the study was funded by the wine industry.


Dr. Carolyn Dean is right. I should know. I was a Wino for the California Wine Institute. Read all about it here:
