This one revolves around headlines on studies that contort or obfuscate the actual results. Did you know that red wine can help seniors maintain mobility later into life? The chemical resveratrol was tested in mice, but could lead to the development of products for seniors. And the chemical is naturally found in red wine! Drink red wine, maintain mobility longer, right?
Only one slight problem: the chemical is poorly absorbed by the body. It would take roughly 700 4-ounce glasses of wine per day to absorb enough resveratrol to see any benefits.
