While leafing through his fortnightly Private Eye, over his daily corned beef sandwich, Ed spotted the following wine related gem:

Raise a glass to a healthy old age…Those in their fifties who regularly have a little wine with their dinner are more likely to be free of the ills of old age, from cancer to heart disease, than those who are teetotal or drink to excess.”

Daily Mail, 7th September
