Maybe the healthiest wine in the world
When I was in South Africa last year, I met a revolutionary winemaker… His wine was completely organic. It had no toxins, and it contained powerful antioxidant properties. It was infused with a local herb called rooibos, also known as “red bush.” You may have seen rooibos tea on supermarket shelves. I immediately knew this wine should be made widely available in America — and I’m still hopeful a distributor will bring it here. I enjoy a nice glass of red wine from time to time, but the trouble with most of the wines sold in America is that they’re loaded with dangerous chemicals. Winema...

Drugs, money and your heart
I was really excited to see a recent headline that said heart doctors should discuss herbal medicines with their patients. The recommendation came from a study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.1 I thought this was a real breakthrough. I thought it meant cardiologists had finally seen the light… Boy, was I wrong… The article said doctors should learn about herbal medicines so they could STOP their patients from using them. You see, supplement use is at an all-time high. About 70% of Americans take them. That’s a lot of people. And Big Pharma would love to capture that market. So they...

How forest fires spoil wine
(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) If wine is cultivated where forest fires occur more often, such as in Australia or Italy, aromas that make the alcoholic drink unpalatable can develop in the finished product. Until now, it wasn't known why this is so and what happens at the molecular level. A team at Technical University Munich is describing why the smoke aromas are stored in grapes and is thus showing the way for growers to eliminate this degradation in quality.

Substance found in red wine 'helps fight ageing'
Conclusion Resveratrol has been of interest to anti-ageing scientists for many years and researchers have previously shown it may be linked to a slowing of the decline in thinking and movement, at least in rodents. This study suggests a possible way this might happen. But the results don't tell us anything about what happens in humans. They suggest this substance may be useful for further research in humans at some point. They certainly don't provide a reason to drink gallons of red wine, in the hope of seeing an anti-ageing effect. Drinking too much alcohol is a sure-fire way to speed up deterioration of thinking skills,...

Farmers Supported Trump. His Proposals Have Them Thinking Again
When President Donald Trump was elected last fall, it was with an apparent majority of the nation’s farmers behind him. But now, three weeks since Trump’s inauguration, some of those farmers appear to be having second thoughts. Dairy farmers and fruit and vegetable growers, both of whom rely heavily on an immigrant workforce to harvest their goods, are expressing fears that Trump’s promise to up immigration enforcement and build a border wall with Mexico could eliminate much of its workforce. Commodity farmers are also concerned that a 20-percent import tax on Mexican goods ― an idea the Trump admi...
