Red wine with at least one meal a day?September 10, 2016 9:05 pm at 9:05 pm #1184499
Personally, wine every day sounds like a lot to me! (but I don’t know what nutritionists say).
Doesn’t it depend on your age? I think the Rambam says something about its being healthy when you’re older (don’t know what age that would be.)September 11, 2016 1:56 am at 1:56 am #1184500👑RebYidd23Participant
One small glass of red wine in the evening.September 29, 2016 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #1184501
In my experience, the Neshama has a strong affinity for bourbon.September 29, 2016 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1184502apushatayidParticipant

This is a question for doctors and nutritionists, and what’s right for one person is not right for someone else. So all of us Coffee Roomers (a/k/a yentas) should shut up. Let me be the first.September 29, 2016 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #1184504
Huju, the coffee room is a safe place for yidden to share their advice, however satirical it may be. I am sure that if Joseph had a serious medical dilemma he would certainly have asked Dr. Google instead. Let’s try to keep things positive?
Much appreciated =)September 29, 2016 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #1184505hujuParticipant
To a talmud haborei: Ok, I’ll be a yenta.
I am not a doctor, not a nutritionist, but I once heard a doctor say 4 ounces of whiskey, or equivalent amounts of wine or beer, are advisable for men over 40, once a day, 7 days a week. And I know someone who followed that advice, was a heavy smoker, and died in his 80’s of a non-cardio-vascular illness. So I guess that proves it. Joseph, have another glass of wine.September 30, 2016 3:08 am at 3:08 am #1184506SparklyMember
alcohol is a type of drug so the answer is NONE.September 30, 2016 3:10 am at 3:10 am #1184507
APY – Pepsi Max has more caffeine. It has the most caffeine of any soda.September 30, 2016 3:13 am at 3:13 am #1184508👑RebYidd23Participant
If its being a type of drug means none should be taken, I’d better stop drinking coffee, eating chocolate and taking medicine for headaches.September 30, 2016 5:00 am at 5:00 am #1184509
No, not CHOCOLATE!!September 30, 2016 5:02 am at 5:02 am #1184510
Huju – my grandfather, a”h, was a heavy smoker and he did NOT drink wine (to my knowledge) and he died in his 80’s. So I guess that proves you wrong! It must be the smoking that provides long life and not the drinking.September 30, 2016 2:26 pm at 2:26 pm #1184511
Thank you huju, I really appreciated that
And if we’re broaching the topic of drugs here, then I’d like to recommend trying some oxygen – I personally can’t get enough of it.September 30, 2016 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #1184512RedlegParticipant
