The heart-healthy buzz around wine can make you believe the stuff is a corked cardiac surgeon. One staffer emailed me: "I'm bad about this, but some of my friends are worse. Someone told them wine was good for their hearts, and they haven't stopped drinking. I told one male friend, 'Y'know, one or two glasses of red wine a day is good for mennot the whole bottle!' He said, 'Well, the bottle is glass...'"
One glass of wine is about 122 calories. The whole bottle? 619 calories.
