The Dirty Truth About Wine
The health benefits of wine seem to be endless.

Research shows wine helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, lowers cholesterol, reduces the risk of cancer, and may even extend your lifespan. Having a glass or two of wine each day has even been recommended by the American Heart Association.

But, unfortunately, there’s a dark side of the industry.

Thanks to a lack of regulation on labeling, most wine sold in the U.S contains massive amounts of hidden colorants, pesticide residue, toxins, and excessive sugar. To say these additives are unhealthy is an understatement.

A recent analysis found 100% of all wines tested in California contained high levels of glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, the cancer-causing herbicide produced by Monsanto.

Todd White, founder of Dry Farm Wines, joins Dr. Friedman to share the dirty truth about wine, from irrigation to fermentation. He’ll also discuss how you can choose healthy, organic wine so you get all the wonderful health benefits without any hidden chemical additives.
