How a decrease in wine consumption makes depression increase

Less restaurants and more pharmacies, this seemed a “boutade” by the “La Revue du Vin de France“ instead it really has been proven by a Spanish survey regarding wine and depression

Small amounts of wine daily prevent depression, anxiety and stress. This is the result of a survey by the Navarra University in Pamplona published by “BMC Medicine journal”. The surveys lasted 7 years on a sample of 5500 people between 55 and 80 years of age, regarded also the Mediterranean diet with a specific reference to oil. Martinez-Gonzalez director of the studies reached the conclusion that “a moderate consumption can reduce the incidence of depression while heavy drinkers have a higher risk”. To drink 2 to 7 glasses of wine per week, spread through the week, it seems reduces the probability of suffering from depression. The illness at present because of the economic situation al round is increasing incredibly fast.

On the contrary the abuse which takes place on Saturday nights with 5 or more drinks one after the other, just like “binge drinking”, is very bad fore you, just like drinking more then 5 glasses of wine per day.
The NHS in Britain has underlined that these subjects have a very high risk of becoming depressed.
Leaving the “clinical” logics of the question and looking at the social impact we must consider the decrease in consumption in producing nations where wine is an important element at the table and for social life. In France for example there has been a decrease in wine consumption from160 litres in 1965 to 30 today while in Italy and in Spain it has decreased by 34% in the last twenty years.

A decrease which is associated with a change in lifestyle or better still in the “art de vivre” and is expressed magisterially in the sentence by Denis Saverot, editor of the “La Revue du Vin de France “ << The village bar are gone, replaced by a pharmacy>> in other words the glasses stay more and more empty while the sales of antidepressants has increased in France to 80 million packets.
If there was the need of a tangible demonstration of the truth in the Spanish study I think this is incontrovertible. The Governments and the associations who finance anti alcohol and falsely health concerned campaigns should remember this.
