It seems that just about every other week I read an article about the health advantages or disadvantages of drinking red wine. Luckily, this week I found a great advantage! Red wine might actually prevent fat cells from growing. Cheers!

The findings published in this week's Journal of Biological Chemistry by Purdue University researchers states that piceatannol, a compound found in red wine and some fruits (so eat up as well!) may have the power to "block the cellular processes that allow fat cells to develop.

To clarify: these findings are are preliminary, but I would like to believe that my weekend evening drink is helping keep my waist line trim!
