    University Suspects Fraud by a Researcher Who Studied Red Wine
    By NICHOLAS WADE
    Published: January 11, 2012
     

    A charge of widespread scientific fraud, involving 26 articles published in 11 journals, was leveled by the University of Connecticut today against Dipak K. Das, one of its researchers, whose work reported health benefits in red wine.

    Dipak K. Das in 2006. Fraud allegations against him, if verified, seem unlikely to affect the field of resveratrol research itself, because his work was peripheral to its central principles.


    Many of the articles reported positive effects from resveratrol, an ingredient of red wine thought to promote longevity in laboratory animals.The investigation of Dr. Das’s work began in January 2009, two weeks after the university received an anonymous allegation about research irregularities in his laboratory. A special review board headed by Dr. Kent Morest of the University of Connecticut has now produced a 60,000-page report, which has been forwarded to the Office of Research Integrity, a federal agency that investigates fraud by researchers who receive government grants.

      This is meaningless as there have been countless independent studies on resveratrol, all showing positive results.

    The French mostly have a high fat diet, and drink gallons of red wine annually while having lower incidences of heart disease than do US citizens.

    I'm betting that the red wine health benefits are legit so long as the wine is consumed in "moderation."

    In the US...Monsanto has GMO foods on the shelves at most major grocery stores, and the FDA is staffed with folks with economic ties to the grain industry - evidence enough for me that American nutritional memes are disinformation at best.

    Also, I didn't know it until six months or so ago...but white wine consumption in moderation actually benefits the health of the lungs.

      I agree with your statement over the red wine. I hubbed on Resveratrol, and the info I found on the health benefits was impressive, but like you said, 'in moderation' where red wine is concerned. Fortunately Resveratrol is not found exclusively in red wine, although I reckon it is more fun consumed through wine wink
