Drinking red wine is good for your health. This is well known, but a new study reports that
it contains a compound, Resveratrol, which is the elixir of life. Scientists have searched
for a substance to stop aging for centuries, and Dr David Sinclair of Harvard Medical
School says he has discovered it. His team combined live yeast and Resveratrol.
Surprisingly, the yeast samples didn’t die, instead they lived 60 per cent longer. The
compound turns on genes which increase longevity and Sinclair is now developing
drugs to cure diseases of aging, such as diabetes, cancer and even Alzheimer´s disease.
He compares his breakthrough to the discovery of antibiotics: people lived 40 years on
average before their introduction. His discovery will not only increase the length, but
also the quality of our lives.
“The compound turns on genes which increase longevity……”
