New Delhi: This might come as a surprise for many but a recent study says that consuming wine in larger glasses encourages people to drink more.

The findings showed that increasing the size of wine glasses led to nearly 10 per cent increase in wine sales.

"We found that increasing the size of wine glasses, even without increasing the amount of wine, leads people to drink more," said Rachel Pechey from University of Cambridge in Britain.

"One reason may be that larger glasses change our perceptions of the amount of wine, leading us to drink faster and order more," Pechey added.

Alcohol consumption is one of the leading risk factors for disease and has been linked to conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and liver disease.
