More Reasons to Drink Wine

Copy of sunsetredglass.jpg

I was reading an article in the "Scientific American Mind" about how loss of smell is associated with disorders such as depression. Apparently, certain patients who undergo 'smell training' are able to help recover their sense of smell. Cool, eh?

According to the article, smells evoke emotions and memories..so that fabulous smell of lilacs reminds you of spring in your home. Smell is one of the oldest senses and is strongly associated with emotions, which is why when you have sinus problems, or just can't smell very well you can be prone to depression.

Just another reason why tasting, or more accurately, smelling wine is good for your health!

Cheers!
