PreventionThe health halo above your beloved cabernet is looking a little dim these days: A diet rich in resveratrol—the anti-inflammatory compound found in red wine, dark chocolate, grapes, and peanuts—won’t actually reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, or death, says a new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Researchers analyzed urine samples from nearly 800 adults over the age of 65 from (where else?) the Chianti region of Italy. After controlling for other factors, it turns out people with the highest concentration of resveratrol metabolites (a marker for having consumed a lot of resveratrol-rich foods) in their urine were no less likely to have died from any cause than the people without any metabolites.
