For the study, Chao's group collected data on 84,170 men who participated in the California Men's Health Study. Among these men, the researchers identified 210 cases of lung cancer.
The researchers found that there was, on average, a 2 percent lower risk of lung cancer associated with each glass of red wine consumed per month.
The greatest reduction was among men who smoked and drank one to two glasses of red wine a day. These men lowered their risk for lung cancer by 60 percent, Chao's group found.
Of course this won't be publicised by nanny government or its lickspittle BBC. And it definitely won't be something temperance politicians in Scotland will be talking about.
