Moderate wine consumption doesn't have adverse effects on basic metabolic markers.

Moderate wine consumption has not effect on soluble protein inflammatory mediators.

Moderate daily tsipouro consumption (ethanol) induces TNFα secretion by PBMCs.

Wine micro-constituents attenuate ethanol effect on cytokine secretion by PBMCs.


This paper shows that the consumption of a fermented drink has a positive impact in relation to cytokine secretion and hence inflammation.
