Including preventing cancer according to one recent study.
From RARE here:
Red wine, is there anything it can’t do? One study suggests that one chemical in red wine can help fight cancer.
Resveratrol, a compound found in grape skins and red wine, has been making headlines for quite some time now, for all the right reasons. Often referred to as “fountain of youth”, Resveratrol is said to have a number of health benefits such as anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular and cancer preventive properties. Now, add one more to the list – Resveratrolcan make certain tumor cells more susceptible to radiation treatment.
A recent study conducted by Michael Nicholl of the University of Missouri has found that melanoma cells become more susceptible to radiation if they were treated first with Resveratrol.

The Brits make fun of us for calling our small beers served in bars “pints.” A true pint is 16 ounces. Now Michigan is outlawing selling anything called a pint if it is actually smaller than 16 ounces. Nice!
From Breitbart here:
A bill in the Michigan Legislature would stop bars and restaurants from selling pints of beer that are less than 16 ounces. It’s a way of protecting consumers, allowing them to get what they pay for. Whether it means bar owners use bigger glasses, or stop calling the smaller glasses pints, remains to be seen.

Electrolytes. Its what plants crave. And hungover people.
From Australiantimes here:
SAY goodbye to the dreaded Monday morning hangover, thanks to researchers from a Queensland university who have discovered it may be possible to improve the hydrating effects of beer.
Since the beginning of time, it seems sipping on a frosty cold beer has been a necessity on a scorching hot day. This can be counter-intuitive at times, given alcohol actually increases dehydration and leads to drunkenness, risky behavior and eventually, the hangover.
However, researchers from Griffith University’s Health Institute may have answered every Australians prayers. They have found that by adding electrolytes, a common ingredient found in sports drinks, and reducing the alcohol content could make a beer more refreshing than ever.
As part of the study the Institute manipulated the electrolyte levels of two commercial beers, one that was regular strength and one that was light. They then gave those two beers to volunteers who had been heavily exercising just before consumption to test their fluid recovery.
The study showed that the light beer that had been combined with electrolytes was one third more effective at hydrating a person than a regular beer. The best news for beer drinkers was that the taste of the modified beverages didn’t change.
Or, you could just drink Gatorade. Or put a little salt in the foamy head of the beer. Its cheaper, keeps the alcohol, and provides a natural electrolyte to replenish losses that occur when drinking.

Those Japanese are always ahead of the curve with bizarre snack foods. They have created a version of Cheetos that fizzes in your mouth.
From the LATimes here:
Pepsi-flavored Cheetos are one of the newest snack flavors to hit shelves in Japan.
According to an early product review on the Impulsive Buy, Pepsi-flavored Cheetos replace that classic cheese flavor with a fizzy cola flavor that actually fizzes in your mouth.
“The first sensation, which I did not expect, was a very acidic bite,” wrote Impulse Buy writer Steve. “It tries to capture the citrus notes of Pepsi, but it’s over the top. Too lemony. The sweeter cola flavor is there but it’s subtler and overpowered by the intense citrus.”
Replacing the cheese with a malloc acid lemony fizz? Eeewwww. What do you think? Good idea or bad?

Weeing a car accident conjures up feelings of pity for the driver and concerns for health and safety. At least, until other more tragic victims are spotted.
