Can drinking red wine save your life? Scientific breakthroughs within the past several years suggest that it may not be an unreasonable question. Red wine's miracle molecule, resveratrol, has been proven to extend life dramatically in experimental animals, and in the short time since the first edition of Age Gets Better with Wine it has practically become a household word. But resveratrol is only one of a family of compounds called polyphenols that may hold the key to preventing Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, and everything from cancer to the common cold. With new discoveries come new controversies though; "Age Gets Better with Wine" explores the question of whether the benefits of healthy drinking can be put into a pill, and delves into the science behind the secret to living longer and living better with wine.
