Resveratrol to the Rescue

Compound that boosts yeast longevity also benefits worms and flies

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: A yeast is a worm is a fly is a person? At least the first three creatures live longer when they sup an extract of red wine, according to new research. The chemical activates related enzymes in all three organisms and might duplicate the effects of extreme dieting. By showing for the first time that the compound works in animals, the results bring human studies a step closer.
