Wine is almost always available in the restaurants, particularly European and American restaurants. Besides the common restaurants that stand by themselves in their own building, numerous restaurants located within the building of hotels also provide the wine for the customers. Wine is good for health compared to the other alcohol-contained drinks. But everybody also knows that wine could be very dangerous for health if the consumption is too excessive.
American Heart Association (AHA) has recently revealed the survey that involved adults in the U.S. about wine consumption. Most of the participants agreed that wine has health benefits but only thirty percent of them understood the limit of daily consumption. According to the association, men are only allowed to drink twice (8 ounces) each day, while women could only drink once (4 ounces) per day.
If the daily consumption passes the limit, the risk of the person to get heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, stroke and obesity is high. The person could also commit suicide and be involved in some accident, according to the association.
Dr. Gerald Fletcher, a medicine professor and spokesman for the AHA, explained that the survey indicated that we have to spread the information about this knowledge so everyone would have a more understanding attitude thus the risk could be reduced.
The AHA also made a survey that resulted in another surprising result. About 60 percent the U.S. citizens believed that sea salt could be an alternative to common table salt as it has lower sodium content. It is wrong because both types of salt have the same 40% sodium.
Back to the wine-related issue, hoteliers can contribute to the education about the limit of wine daily consumption. They can put some posters in the restaurants that warn the guests about the danger of the wine.
