Drinking A Small Amount Of Alcohol During Pregnancy Can Impact A Child’s Brain Development, Says Study

Drinking A Small Amount Of Alcohol During Pregnancy Can Impact A Child’s Brain Development, Says Study

The first few weeks after you find out you’re pregnant can be exciting but stressful. Making changes to your lifestyle with your child in mind can be tough. And the NHS writes that there’s no definitive answer from experts on how much, if any, alcohol is completely safe for you to have while pregnant. Many air on the side of safety and recommend not drinking at all or having a small drink very rarely. However, a study conducted at the University of Sydney has found that even low levels of alcohol consumption during pregnancy may impact a child's brain development and is associated with psychological and behavioral problems like anxiety, poor attention span and depression.

The Year that Changed the Wine World

The Year that Changed the Wine World

“Never A Dull Moment” is the title of a wonderful book about what its author David Hepworth calls “rock’s golden year”. 1971 was indeed an annus mirabilis for music, witnessing the release of landmark albums by David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Yes, The Who and Rod Stewart. For Hepworth, December 31st1970 marked the end of the Sixties – 12 months late, in one sense – and the start of something very different. It was a hinge, a turning pint, a line in the sand.

Beaujolais Nouveau launch disrupted by uncertainties caused by Covid-19

After a number of negociants gained the upper hand at the end of September by announcing purchase prices below €180 /hl for 2020 Beaujolais Nouveau (-10% compared to normal), wine growers fought back and prevented contracts from being registered with the marketing board for less than €200 /hl, the usual going rate. After getting off to a turbulent start, the Nouveau campaign has now settled at a trade price point of €190 /hl in October.

Loss of trans-resveratrol in young red wines
19 October 2020 19:15
Loss of trans-resveratrol in young red wines

Many wine connoisseurs are well aware of the purported health benefits of wine, particularly in regard to antioxidant activity. A commonly cited piece of evidence is the French Paradox – the observation that certain European countries where it is customary to consume a glass of wine per day display improved cardiovascular health and longevity. One of the predominant antioxidant compounds present in red wine is the stilbene trans-resveratrol. It is classified as a phytoalexin, meaning that it is produced as a defensive compound by plants experiencing stress (e.g. herbivores, drought). High concentrations of trans-resveratrol are typically found in grape skins, particularly in red grapes and grapes experiencing high levels of environmental stress and are extracted from these into the wine through the wine-making process. Indeed, trans-resveratrol has been identified as one of the major reasons for the perceived health benefits of red wine. In human and animal trials, trans-resveratrol has been demonstrated to possess cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic effects in a dose-dependent fashion.

The lessons learnt from the ‘Covid test’ label for red Bordeaux

The lessons learnt from the ‘Covid test’ label for red Bordeaux

This is what you call having flair. Bordeaux winegrower Jean-Christophe Mauro, owner of La Chapelle Bérard with 68 hectares of organic vineyards in Saint-Quentin-de-Caplong, launched a pop-up ‘Covid test’ label. He decided to take a humorous approach to the coronavirus pandemic, and its trademark symptom of loss of smell. The intention is also to reverse the downward sales trend of red appellation wines, which has affected Bordeaux in particular. His pared-down label offers some unorthodox “instructions” for testing for Covid [...], “which should only be taken humorously”. “Pour yourself a large glass of wine and smell it. If you can smell it, taste it. If you can smell it and taste it: you don't have Covid!!!!*”
