According to the study, published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology journal, red wine contains an ingredient known as resveratrol which can prevent the female hormone oestrogen from contributing to the growth of breast cancer cells and also stop the cancer cells that have become resistant to the hormone.

Stating that the finding could prove to be a major breakthrough in preventing breast cancer, lead researcher Dr Sebastanio Ando said, "Resveratrol is a potential pharmacological tool to be exploited when breast cancer becomes resistant to hormonal therapy."
