Red wine researcher over a barrel by William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.

Red wine researcher over a barrel

Let's get this straight right off the bat: Red wine and its famous antioxidant, resveratrol, are great for both spirit and body -- especially the heart.

They're both backed by literally thousands of studies -- but they're both under the microscope now that one middling researcher at the bottom of his field managed to get a handful of supposedly flawed studies on wine and resveratrol published over the last seven years.

Naturally, they're after this guy's head -- and if he's responsible for fraud, then lock the joker up and strip him of everything he didn't earn.

But if he's been at this for seven years, getting 26 studies published in 11 journals, what does that say about the state of medical publishing and the peer-review process?

Exactly what I've been saying all along: Don't trust a thing you read -- unless you read it right here.

Keeping it real,

William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
