Cheers - Red Wine Slows Aging

According to a New York Times article, red wine may slow aging and extent human longevity. This is fabulous news for those who enjoy a glass of wine with dinner. The study, cited within the article, gave resveratrol, a chemical found in red wine, to mice. These mice became super athletes, running on tread mills for twice as long as previously recorded. The increased longevity seen in mice may translate to humans - more studies to follow.

In the mean time - bottoms up!
