Wine lengthens life?

According to the results of a new study, drinking a small amount (half a glass) of wine increased life span by five years. Of course, limiting yourself to half a glass could be challenging.

Those are interesting studies to be sure, much like the red wine is good for you studies of a few years ago-the average size glass is more in the Italian way of drinking(small shot glasses almost) instead of the oversized glasses most Americans associate with wine at their local restaurant.

1/2 glass is probably more then challenging....impossible is more like it!

In the west, the compound was found about 50-60 years back. Later, medical science discovered the agent to be a constituent of the red wine as well. In what is popularly known as the French paradox, it was observed that the French are less prone to various heart diseases as compared to the Americans even though they consume unhealthy foods that are rich in fats. The answer was found to be the resveratrol in the red wine that the French would drink heartily.
Medical science has been involved in performing a lot of research on this amazing compound ever since it was highlighted from the French paradox. And the results seem encouraging enough. A synthetic version of the compound came into existence and several manufacturers are currently producing these pills. The supplementary pills were first developed as a single substance dose. Today, however, the supplementary pills use the chemical compound with a variety of other herbal extracts, nutrients and vitamins to further enhance the health benefits.

The best wine coolers provide the most features for your money. Some features to look for are dual or single chilling zones, digital or manual temperature controls, and the type of cooling method each fridge uses. The two types of cooling systems used in wine chillers are thermoelectric or compressor and coolant systems that are identical to the cooling method found in most kitchen refrigerators.
