Iowa State University researchers are trying to help people control alcohol intake.

In a study with Cornell University, researchers found people are more generous in their wine pouring than they realize.

Results show people pour about 12-percent more than a normal serving without realizing it.

People are typically more generous with wider glasses and white wine.

People pour more accurately with red wine and if the glass is on a table as opposed to in their hand.

Researchers say knowing all this can help you control your intake.
