Is the Fountain of Youth filled with Red Wine?

Well I certainly hope so. These reports come out all the time. Red wine will make you live longer, fight heart disease, get healthier, grow taller, jump higher. Ok, I just got a little carried away. Anyway here's another study from Italy that touts the benefits of red wine... Click the title link above for the full report. BTW, I love reading these studies with a nice glass of Cabernet.

Cheers!


(ANSA) - Rome, February 6 - Red wine can make you live longer and feel better while you're at it, a new Italian study indicates .

A chemical in the wine slows ageing and wards off two things the elderly often gripe about, feeling weaker and slower on the uptake, the scientists said. The researchers gave the wine molecule, an anti-oxidant called resveratrol, to the killifish - a tropical fish whose short life span makes it ideal for ageing studies. The molecule produced a 30% lifespan boost and slowed the appearance of the two typical bugbears, a slackening of muscles and a slowdown in learning abilities.
