Yesterday, I told you that animal studies have shown that resveratrol can help prevent the development of prostate cancer in men. Women, too, have a specific reason to pay attention to this powerful antioxidant: It can help protect against breast cancer.

Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology found that female mice given resveratrol had a significantly reduced risk of developing breast cancer.

This anti-aging substance has a host of additional health benefits – and we look forward to more research over the next few years to give us a fuller understanding of them.

Meanwhile, blueberries, red grapes, cranberries, bilberries, and – of course – red wine are all good sources of resveratrol. You can also find it in supplement form in many health food stores.
