Byrd Institute Uncorks a Clinical Trial on Wine & Alzheimer's

Can red wine change the course of Alzheimer’s disease? Not red wine specifically—but resvaratrol, a component of it that can also be found in chocolate, berries and peanuts. The USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute is taking part in a national study that hopes to determine what part that component plays in slowing down memory deterioration. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has all the tasty facts.

WUSF 89.7 depends on donors for the funding it takes to provide you the most trusted source of news and information here in town, across our state, and around the world. Support WUSF now by giving monthly, or make a one-time donation online.
