Keep Drinking Wine, You'll Live Longer

You know it is a great week when you turn on the Today Show and watch Matt Lauer telling you to drink more wine!  A study that was released this week tells us that a compound, Resveratrol, may protect the heart and slow the effects of aging.  This is a "no brainer" for any one who has hung out with their italian family and watched their 80 year old relatives sip down jug after jug of table wine.  Usually these tests are done on mice, and we are not sure how many bottles of wine these mice had to drink, but we hope they were drinking something good.
