American scientists from Johns Hopkins University conducted a study in which he found that red wine and chocolate does not affect the duration of a person's life.
It turns out that the information on these two products coming earlier, is false. The study was conducted in the period from 1998 to 2009. Only the study involved 800 people over the age of 65 living in cities of Tuscany. Scientists interviewed volunteers and learned about their diet, then regularly measure levels of resveratrol.
For 11 years the study of 800 people died 268 participants, 174 people were diagnosed with diseases of the cardiovascular system, in 34 cases, doctors have diagnosed with cancer.
Scientists have found that the link between the level of resveratrol (the main component of wine and chocolate) and life expectancy does not exist. By and large, health is influenced by the mode of the day and diet. Chocolate and wine - a nice addition to improving the quality of life.
