Excessive intake of everything is harmful for health. It has been already analysed that intake of Alcohol is harmful for health but it has been studies that intake of red wine is healthy for your health. Red wine contains an ingredient called resveratrol which has been found to reduce the risk of heart disease and increase life expectancy. But it is studied that it is not benefited for healthy women. Red wine may not protect middle aged women against a range of life threatening conditions, scientists have warned.
Study co-author Dr Samuel Klein, said, “Resveratrol supplements have become popular because studies in cells and rodents show it can prevent or reverse certain health problems like diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. But our data demonstrate it does not have metabolic benefits in relatively healthy, middle-aged women. Few studies have evaluated the effects of resveratrol in people. Those studies were conducted in people with diabetes, older adults with impaired glucose tolerance or obese people who had more metabolic problems than the women. So it is possible that resveratrol could have beneficial effects in people who are more metabolically abnormal than the women who participated in the study.”

One of the organizers of the event, Professor Karen Brown, a member of the University’s Cancer Biomarkers and Prevention Group, said, “This is the second conference that brings together all the world experts in resveratrol. We have got a fantastic line up covering cancer, heart disease, diabetes, neurological diseases and life extension. She added, “At the University of Leicester, we want to see how resveratrol might work to prevent cancer in humans. Having shown in our lab experiments that it can reduce tumor development we are now concentrating on identifying the mechanisms of how resveratrol works in human cells.”
