'I brushed, I swear'...The truth about Red Wine and Stained Teeth

In I brushed, I swear Michele Foley (Chow) does a quick Q and A on the topic of Red Wine and Stained Teeth.

The Scotsman on the other hand suggests that Red wine 'may help to stop teeth falling out' in being key to prevent and treat serious gum disease.

I will let you sort all that out.

What is your take on this?
