What the heck...?
Gotta say the Brits @ BBC have that one hands down! Who wouldn't be enticed by 'guilt free gluttony'...but click on either pic for the link to each article & see the different slant each provides.
The real story is (again) that resveratrol - a compound normally found in red wine - is a very potent agent in the fight against many maladies of aging and bad diet.
That's good news for all of us who enjoy wine. The bad news is that this compound is normally found in small quantities - an equivalent dosage for a human adult would take 100 bottles (8.5 cases) a day of red wine!
Nobody's going to be doing that, but the day a decent supplement become available (provided the monkey & human studies replicate these findings) - look out!
Certainly a private sector proposal for concentrating the resveratrol from the current international wine glut would be attractive to several governments, which have been strapped in the past to subsidize vineyards that otherwise weren't selling or over-producing.
