Recent study: Men who were given two glasses of red wine (a total of nine ounces) a day had higher levels of beneficial bacteria in their gut and lower levels of Clostridium, a bacteria linked to bowel disease and ?colon cancer.

Theory: Researchers believe the polyphenol antioxidants in wine promote a better balance of bacteria.

Sorry ladies, women were not studied. But we at The Daily Burst are keeping our eyes peeled for any news about this for you.
