Wine ...good for the eyes

I never drink hard liqour in my whole life nor a sip of beer.But dont you know that drinking wine helps prevent macular degeneration. People who had as few as two glasses of red or white wine per year have their risk of developing this potentially blinding eye disease. Wine contains phenols, anti-oxidants believed to prevent retinal damage.Also dont smoke, control your blood pressure and limit your intake or saturated fats.
