How much or How Little?

A glass of red wine a day for women, and two for men, appears to be good enough and reduces the risk of heart disease at middle age by 30 to 50%.

There is 1.5 to 3 mg of Resveratrol per liter of red wine. In the experiment, mentioned earlier, the mice were fed with 24mg /kg of their body weight. Therefore a human should consume 1000 glasses of red wine, on an average, to meet daily requirements, which is simply not feasible.

In some western countries, Resveratrol capsules are available over the counter. To gain effectively from this performance-enhancing drug, humans need to be as responsive to it as the rodents. The benefit of Resveratrol to humans is yet to be proven conclusively and its production is not governed by the FDA.

Dear Sir, For the ageing problem to be slow we require the basic natural necessities i.e., clean air, clean water and clean environment. None of the above is present now anywhere in the world except perhaps in Amazon forest and congo forest. There also human beings have gone and slowly spoiling it. So called scientists take quantity x from nature and give back only x-1,2... In Hindu philosophy it is called Yuga characteristics. Nothing can be done except crying from rooftops to stop pollution. IT IS A PITY. HS NARAYANAN

Dear Sir, Article is excellent. I will be very thankful. Food restriction is the process which most probably will limit the load of OXYRADICALS in the system thereby postponing the Age Related changes. Please send me the references so that the issue of FOOD RESTRICTION and how it works can be cleared. Thanks Dr. VENUGOPAL

I sometimes wonder what is the so called "good" or "bad" in terms of diet.The dietary recommendations keep changing on a day to day basis. I suppose the good old practice of our ancestors to eat timely meals prepared from chemical free ingredients should do the trick.
