Live longer; drink red wine

Another misleading health headline in today’s Times that concerns wine. It’s not really the wine itself, but that famous compound resveratrol present in grape skins. One doctor said you’d have to drink 100 bottles of red wine a day to get the benefit. The benefit being that your body switches from reproductive mode to tissue maintenance mode. Starving yourself does the same thing.

But what if it’s true?
