Ensuring healthy drinking water was always an important question in the history of mankind. This typically means the fight against water-born infectious diseases. Concerning these efforts people found the secret of wine making. During the Middle Ages Hungary became a wine consuming and wine producing country. After the World War II the wine consuming habits took a wrong direction, with an increase in the consumption of spirits and beer. However, recently hundreds of publications demonstrated the beneficial effects of moderate wine consumption, in the prevention of several diseases, e.g. cardiovascular diseases and cancer. The probable major cause of the so called French paradox, is also the consumption of red wine. This course tries to give a summary from the viewpoint of public health, physiology, toxicology, epidemiology and nutrition.
The students will be familiar with the health risks and benefits of wine consumption, they will be able to critically evaluate nutrition (and drinking) related facts and data.
