Wine Health 2013 Scientific Conference

Twenty years after the term the ‘French Paradox’ was coined, scientific studies continue to explore the complex relationship between the consumption of wine and health. This relationship has been the focus of a long standing series of scientific meetings starting in Udine (Italy) in 1996 followed by the New York Academy of Science Meeting in 2001 in Palo Alto, California (USA), Santiago (Chile) in 2002, Stellenbosch (South Africa) in 2005, Bordeaux (France) in 2007 and Friuli (Italy) in 2010. You are now invited to Sydney, Australia from the 18th to the 21st of July 2013 for WineHealth 2013.

This Conference provides an opportunity to bring together world experts for a stimulating exchange of scientific information and ideas on the impacts of wine consumption on human health, and to explore the epidemiological evidence of the effect of wine as a unique alcoholic beverage.

The Conference also aims to provide deeper insight into the biological mechanisms involved in any beneficial effects of wine on health, and how specific molecules present in grapes and wine have biological activities that may be harnessed for health. Sociological outcomes of the use and abuse of wine, and hence public health priorities will also be presented for debate and discussion.

It is envisaged that these exchanges will contribute to the evidence base for public policy setting, provide direction for new research efforts into the health effects of wine, and offer opportunities for international collaborations.
