A study from the University of Southern California found that drinking one glass a day of a grape-based wine can help lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, and some cancers, according to the university.
The study, published in the journal Health Psychology, analyzed data from more than 12,000 participants from the California Department of Public Health.
The study was conducted between 2012 and 2016.
The participants were randomly assigned to drink one of three wine types: white wine, red wine, or white grape juice.
The researchers found that the people who drank a glass of white wine were at increased risk of having a heart attack, stroke and a heart failure in their later 40s compared to those who drank red wine or white wine.
Those who drank white wine had a higher risk of developing a stroke and having a lower risk of a heart-related heart attack.
The people who also drank white grape wine had lower rates of the most common cancers of the spine, lungs, pancreas, kidney, and liver, the researchers found.
The grape-juice study was a collaborative effort between the University at Buffalo and the University College Dublin.
The University at Albany at New York is the first university to use a collaborative research strategy.
