Oenophiles rejoice – a glass or two or red wine with a meal may boost your heart health, help you lose weight, reduce forgetfulness, boost your immunity and even help with bone loss. Here are six research-backed reasons to say cheers,

1. Protect your brain.
When researchers gave memory test to older women, those who drank one drink or more every day scored much better that those who drank less or not at all.

One of the keys to a successful marriage is to get angry. At least, that is the conclusion of a recent study out of Florida State University, where researchers examined the complex dynamics of why some relationships last and others fail.

The findings run counter to the recent trend of “positive psychology” in which couples are taught that forgiveness, optimism, kindness and positive thinking can help heal a broken relationship following a serious transgression.
