I don’t really need a reason to drink wine but I find I can justify it a little more when I find articles like this. The article suggests that drinking red wine can help you to live a longer and healthier life. American researchers have found that resveratrol which is found in the skin of red grapes can reduce inflammation that leads to heart disease, stroke and Diabetes. It has also been shown to prolong the life of roundworms and flies. Researchers now want to study its effect on humans but early signs indicate that it could help reduce the development of type 2 diabetes, ageing, heart disease and strokes. This seems like another excuse to have a glass of wine.
