a doctor would ask.
Cancer studies show that consumption of red wine can slightly reduce lung cancer development whereas white wine can cause an extremely slight increase in lung cancer development. The tannins in red wine act as antioxidants and can thus help fight cancer whereas the ethanol in white wine can have a negative effect on gene mutation. However, this research does not mean that people should be encouraged to drink red wine to fight cancer. The beneficial properties of wine need to be separated and utilized in a form other than wine to gain maximum benefit from this research knowledge.
