Drink Wine... Become An Athlete?

A recent study on mice has shown that there is hope for all raging alcoholics who want to beat Lance Armstrong in the Tour de France. So you think you're cool because you can do a 5 minute keg stand? Put your alcoholism to good use. According to a study published this month by Dr. David Sinclair of the Harvard Medical School, the drug resveratrol, which can be found in common red wine has been linked with reversing the effects of obesity in mice, extending their life, and increasing their endurance!

Before you go down 5 bottles of wine to try to get Hercules-like physique and stamina, be forewarned that the experiments have yet to be tested on humans.
