    Read that article this morning. I suppose that if you drank 100 glasses of wine a day, you wouldn’t much care about aging one way or another, eh?

    Thank god we cleared that up – any physician or study that claims red wine is bad for you is a quack (I don’t even need to read the trial – my 69 strand DNA chakra tells me so)

    Thank you for linking to this — already public gullibility is high (always ready for the next “miraculous” thing, people think what’s printed in the newspaper is fact, and worse yet, think “may be” and “could be” equals is.) Journalists who write about scientific discoveries generally need to be a lot more careful than they (or most) are in writing their stories. taking into account their audience.
