DISCUSSION: This is tricky. Don’t just look at the answers that talk about wine consumption. Remember that lines 53-60 say that the health benefits of grape juice may help prove that moderate wine drinking is healthy.
- CORRECT. Lines 50-52 show that moderate wine drinking makes blood vessel inner walls less thick. If drinking grape juice did the same thing, then lines 53-60 imply that wine could be healthy, because of grapes.
- This shows no difference between wine and beer drinking. We’re told beer drinking is bad, so how does this help wine?
- Platelet adhesiveness is bad. This hurts the argument, since wine is made of grapes. (You might think that this answer contradicts lines 53-55, but it doesn’t. Sure, one study showed grapes reduced platelet adhesiveness. But studies often contradict each other).
- This doesn’t tell us anything new about moderate wine consumption. It’s unclear how this interesting fact about excessive wine drinking strengthens the idea that moderate wine is good.
- This doesn’t tell us that wine is good. It’s just an interesting genetic fact about some people.
