Important Wine News

Since I’m now NLT’s wine editor, I would be remiss if I didn’t pass along this good news about the health benefits of red wine:

A substance found in red wine protected mice from the ill effects of obesity, raising the tantalizing prospect the compound could do the same for humans and may also help people live longer, healthier lives, researchers are reporting today.

The story adds, "They also noted that a person would have to drink at least 100 glasses of red wine a day or take mega doses of the commercially availably supplements to get the levels given to the mice." Hey, I’m willing to try, though the story cautions that such a level of consumption "not be safe in humans." Worrywarts.

Ah, I see Joe beat me to the story. I’ll have to get up earlier.


I was thinking of you when I posted it.

The real danger of the 100-glass-a-day diet is you will probably lose count around the 25th glass. And that you’ll wake up naked in the lemur cage at your local zoo.
