Allopathic practitioners and the pharmaceutical giants enjoy promoting natural compounds including resveratrol as worthless, akin to snake oil and frequently attempt to convince the public that they are wasting their money by using these supplements. Naturally, the big medical concerns make huge profits by selling a host of prescription drugs that account for more than 100,000 deaths every year, even when taken as prescribed.

Resveratrol found to be essential element in the fight against prostate cancer

Posted November 28, 2012

It is estimated that one in five men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their lifetime. Our body normally has a sophisticated array of mechanisms available to fight the aberrant growth of cancerous cells, including slow-growing prostate tumors. Many men slowly lose the ability to fight cancer cell growth during aging, as decades of poor diet, lack of physical activity and exposure to environmental toxins combine to accelerate the aging process, and genetic replication becomes less efficient leading to mutations and cancer.

Resveratrol may help fight prostate cancer

Posted November 12, 2012

Mayo Clinic writes that resveratrol might be a key ingredient in red wine which helps to prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces “bad” cholesterol and prevents blood clots. Research suggests resveratrol might also help protect you from from obesity and diabetes, both of which are strong risk factors for heart disease. However, as of this time these findings have been reported only in mice, not in people. Research shows that resveratrol might also be linked to a reduced risk of inflammation and blood clotting, both of which can lead to heart disease. Other foods which contain some resveratrol include peanuts, blueberries and cranberries.
