The Greatest Breakthrough in Science since Fermentation?

The cis-isomer of resveratrolImage via Wikipedia


Apparently, some deft scientists have created yeast strains that produce resveratrol in beer, that lovely chemical in red wine that's supposed to be very good for you and extend your life.  Here's a quote from this article from Discovery via MSNBC.com:

BioBeer, as it's called, has three genes spliced into special brewer's yeast that produce resveratrol, the chemical in red wine that is thought to protect against diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's and other age-related conditions

This is proof that good things do come to those who wait and that science will ultimately determine the only way to live to 300 is to drink beer, coffee, and smoke cigarettes.....if given enough time and grants.
