Resveratrol May Not Extend Life | The Scientist

Resveratrol May Not Extend Life | The Scientist.

Hector et al. recently published a meta-analysis of the overall effects of resveratrol (link below).� Overall, resveratrol it seems to decrease risk of death, but the strength of the effects are highly variable depending upon species. It seems to extend lifespan reliably in yeast and worms, but not so reliably in other critters. Too bad! We all love our red wine… we’ll have to await the results of human trials… Who’s with me??
