Wine and olive oil

ABC News reports that an Australian study found red wine raises blood pressure slightly in men. Several American researchers could not duplicate that effect, which leaves the subject open to different interpretations. Even with the results, the Aussie authors still state that up to two glasses daily are beneficial to overall health.

And a
Toronto Sun article states that the inclusion of more olive oil in your diet (a principal part of the Mediterranean style diet) may counteract this effect of wine.
As they state “the good news about this study is that not only will you live longer but you'll do so while enjoying some pretty wonderful foods.”

Sounds pretty good to me…

I'm not taking any chances. I'll drink as much wine as possible just in case there are benecial effects.
