For anyone who enjoys a drop of the red stuff there’s some good news this week. A study in America has revealed that a substance in red wine could hold back the effects of ageing and fight the ill effects of high-calorie diets.
The news we’ve all been waiting for?
It is reported that obese mice given the compound Resveratrol, plentiful in red wine, lived longer and had healthier hearts and livers.
Trouble is that when scaled up to human levels, it would apparently be the equivalent of 100 bottles of wine a day.
But fear not, the other big news this week is that scientists at Newcastle University are on their way to growing livers. Cheers!
