NUT 11 2/2008 SAMPLE OUTLINE FOR MINI-TERM PAPER Is Red Wine Good for Your Heart? 1. Thesis: Does red wine reduce the risk of getting coronary heart disease? 2. Background information: “French Paradox” – the French have low levels of coronary heart disease (CHD), even though they consume a lot of saturated fat. It may be that compounds in red wine are partly responsible for the reduction in CHD risk (2). Red wine contains lots of plant-derived phenolic compounds that come from grape seeds, skins, and vine stems (2). Consumption of phenolic compounds is linked to reduced accumulation of plaque in the arteries, and therefore reduced risk of heart disease (4). Phenolic compounds have antioxidant effects which may explain their beneficial actions (4). 3. A. The influence of moderate red wine consumption on antioxidant status and indicies of oxidative stress associated with CHD in healthy volunteers. * The purpose of this metabolic study was to see if red wine consumption would favorably change antioxidant status and oxidative stress in healthy men and women (1).
