    Actually, when us kids got carried away playing too rough or something, my folks would say, “Enough is enough, too much is not enough….”

    As much as I dislike Wikipedia: Resveratrol (3,5,4’-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene) is a stilbenoid, a type of natural phenol, and a phytoalexin produced naturally by several plants when under attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi.
    The effects of resveratrol are currently a topic of numerous animal and human studies. Its effects on the lifespan of many model organisms remain controversial, with uncertain effects in fruit flies, nematode worms,5 and short-lived fish. In mouse and rat experiments, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, blood sugar-lowering and other beneficial cardiovascular effects of resveratrol have been reported. In humans, however, while reported effects are generally positive, resveratrol may have lesser benefits.6 In one positive human trial, extremely high doses (3–5 g) of resveratrol, in a proprietary formulation designed to enhance its bioavailability, significantly lowered blood sugar.7 This 28-day Phase 1b study was conducted privately in India by the pharmaceutical company, Sirtris, and was announced at an investor conference in 2008.8 Although it has been alluded to in review articles, the study has never been published in a peer-reviewed scientific publication. Despite the mainstream press alleging resveratrol’s anti-aging effects,9 until 2013 there was no accepted data to form a scientific basis for the application of these claims to mammals (see life extension section below). At present, research on resveratrol is still in its infancy and the long-term effects of supplementation in humans are not known.1011


    In short, red wine seems to be good for the heart (and soul(, according to the comic.

    Always pursue the truth.
    always….and not all of the data is in.
    Patience, patience.

    BTW, you can get resveratrol from unfermented grape juice, too, without the alcohol. That means you can drink enough juice to get an even larger quantity of resveratrol, and still be able to drive safely. That is not to mention other sources that don’t get mentioned when people are praising wine. Don’t put me down as simply a prude. Alcohol, in excess, obviously has bad effects on cognitive function and motor control. If you’re going to drink wine, drink responsibly, and don’t use the “good” effects as an excuse to overindulge!
