Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your query in my opinion she can take one or two drinks for red wine but not more than that . Red wine is good for health in moderate amounts and cuts the bad cholesterol increasing the good one but in excess mounts its bad . So in my view she can go for it in controlled manner. Take care.
