Health experts are reconsidering the effects of alcohol on kidney function.  According to Natural News, drinking a glass of wine in the evening could have some health benefits.

While scientists have found that alcohol can have some "devastating effects on the kidneys," they are looking in to the possiblity that those with chronic kidney disease may actually benefit from drinking a small amount of wine each day than those who do not.

This could mean good news for 26 million Americans suffering from kidney disease. The new study show it benefits the cardiovascular system, which helps high blood pressure and diabetes.

It's not clear if there is more benefit with red or white wine. Of course as with everything else, moderation is the key.
