Good news for red wine drinkers. Science has once again given you permission and encouragement to drink … wine that is. It seems there is a substance called Resveratrol (also found in red grapes, my favorite) as well as red wines that may protect us from cognitive decline as well as hearing loss. The Henry Ford Hospital is responsible for this good news. They believe that “Resveratrol is a powerful chemical that seems to protect against the body’s inflammatory process as it relates to aging, cognition and hearing loss.”

I didn’t know our bodies become inflammed as we age. I thought we shrink and wither. Guess not.

So drink away. Now you can justify it.
