It will also go to your head, make you forget you need her so.

Ugh. Not this resveratrol shiat again.

I see what you did there.

It made me laugh.

Yes, because pomegranate isn't selling enough.

That's some in-depth reporting there, Lou.

It makes me feel so fine. It keeps me rockin', all of the time.

A glass of red wine will help keep you fit.

So Fark, I would suggest that we all go out and get fit-faced.
 
2012-05-07 02:20:21 AM
Aging is a by-product of living. They go hand in hand.
 
2012-05-07 02:24:34 AM
Meh, I'll stick to whiskey.
 
2012-05-07 02:27:11 AM
That's just great. I'm allergic to red wine because of the histamines. Do red wine supplement pills work just as well?

My brother-in-law gave up smoking and drinking 20 years ago and dropped dead of a massive heart attack 48 hours ago. 59 years old. So much for that master plan. Party on.

My suspicion regarding all of these alcohol is good for X reason is that it convinces us to drink more (not that I am totally against it). Alcohol tends to make us sleepy and passive, or, somewhat conversely, lose inhibitions. So, after drinking heavily, we've either passed out, hooked up or gotten in a fight.

But don't take my word for it. Here's what Bill Hicks had to say (audio only, sorry).

Oh, and since it Bill Hicks, obviously the audio is NSFW.
 
2012-05-07 02:56:03 AM
I thought I heard something on the news about this, and they said you would have to drink something like 100+ glasses of wine a day to see any possible benefit from drinking red wine.

What about Mad Dog Banana Red? Does that count?

It doesn't actually reverse ageing, it just makes other people look younger and more attractive.

But I'll take that,.

OK, got it. Redbull slows down the aging process.

Drink more Redbull.

I don't know about aging but my doctor last week told me to drink more red wine.

Something about needing "good cholesterol".

Sounded good to me. I'm smashed.
 
2012-05-07 07:16:39 AM
Let's see... during the R months wine/beer ratio is around 80/20, for the rest it's reverse... and vodak is, of course, all year round. Based on all the articles about beneficial aspects of the wine, beer and alcohol in general my calculations show that I will live approximately forever. Nice. *puts a dollar in the bank account.*

Obviously there's not gonna be any difference between 33 and 40.

Do they have that in pill form?

"I never drink....wine."

No really, I can't stand the crap.

When I was a kid, my father chugged wine by the gallon (Ernest & Julio were his best friends). There is only 4 years age difference between my parents, but people kept asking me if my father was my grandfather.
 
2012-05-07 08:15:32 AM
I guess millions of ragged street people can't be wrong, they especially looked young... oh wait, they all look 20-30 years older than they really are.

Same with veryone that I've known to have a drinking problem (which I know read wine was part of their steady diet).

That proved it.

red wine has a chemical in it called resveratrol that stimulates your genes

Salma Hayek stimulates my jeans too. Can I just drink her?

ecmoRandomNumbers: Ugh. Not this resveratrol shiat again.


When the dust settles, I'm willing to lay a signaifacnt amount of mone that Resveratrol is either proven not to have any effect at all, or to be such a trace amount that it is eseentially meaningless. OTOH I am equally certain that the benfits of drinking red wine will be scientifically validated. And that's because Red wine is one of the very few dietary sources of significant amounts of Chromium, which plays a very important role in re-sensitizing your body's insulin receptors causing you to need less insulin to handle your dietary carbohydrate intake. As insulin is directly linked to everything from higher blood pressure, asthma, increased LDL cholesterol counts, the creation and storage of fat, and the deposition of arterial plaque, reducing your production of it has wondrous health benefits.

I take resveratrol. It's not a terribly expensive supplement at the health stores. It's made partly from red grape seed extract, which is a known anti-cancer agent. So even if it isn't quite the fountain of youth some are claiming, it's still got some good properties.

I'm sorry for your loss. My condolences.

But if he quit smoking and drinking at 39, he probably did smoke and drink for about two decades. Quitting is good, but it doesn't undo 20 years of damage.

That depends on whether you're a billionaire or not.

Red wine is good for you. Red wine is bad for you. Red wine is neither good nor bad for you.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Let's do the media yo-yo again!

So if I drink brandy, I should live forever.

Red wine is an antioxidant, which is good for your skin, as long as taken in moderation. Too much alcohol will perform exactly the opposite function.
