Bad News of the Day: Red Wine Isn’t Really Good For You

We’ve heard for years in countless medical magazines that according to research conducted by the esteemed Dr Dipak K. Das, a professor at the University of Connecticut‘s Department of Surgery and director of its Cardiovascular Research Center, that drinking red wine can actually help your heart. After a three year investigation that claim has been found to be a big fat lie.

Medical News Today disclosed that Dr. Das is “is guilty of 145 counts of fabrication and falsification of data” after a 60,000 page report from the investigation of misconduct in the research of Dr. Das in regards to the benefit of resveratrol, a compound found in red wine.

The university has initiated the dismissal proceedings of the researcher who gained tenure in 1993.

There is still research being done on the benefits, if any, on reseratrol, and these findings are not likely to impact that research at all.
