According to new research, tomatoes are being genetically modified to contain resveratrol-which is a powerful disease-fighting antioxidant normally found in grapes. In fact, it's apparently the resveratrol that makes that daily glass of red wine so beneficial to us. The issue is when we drink more than that one glass-then the benefits go right out the window because as is the case with most alcohol, our blood pressure goes up with increased amounts. So, why is this such exciting news? Because just one enhanced tomato can contain as much resveratrol as 50 bottles of wine!
Excuse me while I enjoy this Bloody Mary.
