Red Wine Research

First the bad news:

Remember all that research about resveratrol, the compound in red wine said to help your heart? "Following a three-year investigation, a university review board has concluded that Dipak K. Das, Ph.D., the director of the Cardiovascular Research Center at the university's school of medicine, in Farmington, manipulated research data in at least 145 instances."

Then the good news from one of the commenters on the post:

While scientific misconduct is a serious matter, it is worth understanding that this isn't about "all that research about resveratol" as the summary puts it, but rather just the research on it by a particular researcher in Connecticut, who was neither the first nor most significant researcher in the field.

I'm choosing to believe that red wine is still all it was cooked up to be.
