Red Wine and Nuclear Fallout: Good News or Bad?

by Daniel Rogov » Tue Oct 07, 2008 8:56 am

Over the last decade we have been virtually inundated with data about how wine – especially red wine – is good for us. Any fool capable of inserting a coin into a vending machine is now aware that wine consumed in moderation is good for our hearts, our lungs, our kidneys, our skin, and even our toenails. We know that red wine adds to our life expectancy, that it helps avoid Parkinson's, slows down the ravages of Alzheimers and may well help shorten the duration of the common cold. One study even suggested that resveratrol (that magical panacea found in red wines) may even reduce the impact of leprosy.

And now the absolutely latest – red wine may help human beings resist nuclear radiation. Nope – not a joke. See the research reported this morning in the Wine Specator online at http://www.winespectator.com/Wine/Featu ... 31,00.html

One minor reservation. As is written in the report, before red wine will have any positive effect in aiding humans to at least partly resist the foibles of nuclear terrorists, atom bombs, hydrogen bombs or leaks from our neighborhood nuclear power station, one will have to consume some 720 bottles of wine daily. As one of the researcher said: “By the time someone drank that much wine, “you wouldn’t have to worry about the radiation anymore.”

there you go---the French can now convert their vast unsold overproduction of overpriced plonk wines into high dosage nuclear radiation resisting preventitive serums!
