Red Wine, Does It Truly Help Cure The Body?

Most people enjoy sipping on red wine, and they also enjoy hot bubble baths, but New York Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire enjoys soaking in it.

The 31-year-old player, who currently had knee surgery, claims that bathing in red wine makes him feel great after intense preseason play.

His elaborate treatment include4s a red wine and water bath, followed by a 90-minute massage and then moving to a salt tub, a hot tub, a cold plunge and finally, a pool.

Amar’e truly believes that the red wine makes a big impact.

“The red wine bath is very important to me because it allows me to create more circulation in my red blood cells,” he told ESPN.

Apparently, the ancient Spartans were said to bathe their infants in wine to make them stronger. Red wine has been known to possess some health benefits, this is thanks to resveratrol –an antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes and cocoa. Red wine has also been shown to encourage heart health.

“There is no scientific evidence to disprove his theories and there is also no scientific evidence to prove it,” says Dr. Whitney Bowe, a dermatologist in New York City.

“If it is helping him, he should absolutely keep doing it, but it may not be the red wine [causing the good feelings],” she added.

Dr. David Geier, an orthopedic surgeous and sports medicine expert in Charleston, South Carolina, thinks that a reason Amar’e might feel so good is because it is still early in the NBA season.

“He may feel better because he has had a few nights off. It’s hard to imagine how lying in the red wine would have any affect on [cartilage] pain,” he said.

Geier also added that as long as the treatments are not harmful to the athlete’s, they should continue to do what makes them feel healthy.

“The red wine bath and spa treatment can reduce cortisol levels, simply relieving stress can have a benefit for overall health and well-being. He’s decreasing cortisol and stress in his body,” added Dr. Bowe.

What do you think about this?

Could it all truly be in Amar’e’s head or do you truly believe that red wine could potentially have positive affects for the body?

Wu-Tang Clan Will Release New Album On Black Friday

At the beginning of the year Wu-Tang Clan made headlines all over the United States when they announced that only one copy of their album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin would be released, the Clan has now announced a new strategy for the release of their new album, A Better Tomorrow.

Yesterday, RZA revealed that the album would be released around Black Friday or November 28, and that a limited edition Boombotix portable speaker would be released with five album tracks and three bonus tracks. He also added that only 3,000 would be made.

“I had the idea pop up into my head, for a while, about music being kind of disconnected to us. Of being so digitized and accessible, but yet not tangible,” said RZA as he described his motivation for the idea of the speaker.

“But this thing here, a tangible item, like your old Walkman or your old cassette, or your old record, that’s what this is bringing back,” he added.

What is your opinion on the idea of the speaker? Do you think it will be successful or a fail?

Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good and Iggy Azalea Are All Victims Of Leaked Nudes

As we all know, there has been a “leak” of celebrity nudes on the internet thanks to an unknown hacker(s). First Kim Kardashian, then this morning, Meagan Good, Rihanna, Gabrielle Union and Iggy Azalea.

Most people were not surprised by Kim’s or Rihanna’s but Iggy’s was by far one of the worst.

According to Inflexwetrust.com, Gabrielle and Dwayne Wade released joint statements that said, “It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures.”

They added, “I can’t help but be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide. For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes – We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”

Along with this, Gabrielle and Dwayne are having the FBI investigate who the hacker was. Following behind their steps Meagan Good released a statement as well. Good has been getting a lot of criticism via the internet (with memes) the fact that her husband, DeVon Franklin is a well-known pastor has a lot to do with it. 

“We all know these pictures were for my husband… and at the end of the day evidently we all know how I feel about my titties,” She said.

What is your opinion on this story? Is the thought that someone can just hack your phone frightening? Or are the celebrities at blame?
