It would appear that it has nothing to do with the wine at all, it has to do with all that cheese and other dairy products they eat. Dieticians have been telling everyone in the UK to avoid cooking with saturated fat dairy products, but instead, turn to unsaturated fat oils. This seems likely to have made a big change in our cholesterol. Experiments where patients ate identical meals in week one and week two, but week two had dairy products added, showed remarkable results in the stool analysis. Week two in all people showed a minimum of double the amount of fat being passed straight through the gut instead of being absorbed. Further investigation has shown that the calcium in the dairy products reacts with fat in the small intestine, combining with it, forming a soapy substance which our bodies cannot absorb. After decades of avoiding dairy products, we are now absorbing twice the fat we used to.
I'm so glad they are getting the answers to this at last.
