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.
