Question

Lee in Saffron Walden asked:

If red wine is good for us, is sherry good too?

Answer

Well sherry's quite a rich source of alcohol. But I think it's got to be taken in the context of your overall sense of well being. Don't drink too much and make sure other aspects of your life are healthy. Unfortunately it doesn't contain the same specific healthy components that red wine does.
