  • Getting Behind the Resveratrol Hype

    A few years ago, Resveratrol—a compound found in red wine and dark chocolate, among other foods—made a splash in the news as an anti-aging wonder and was soon after seized upon by marketers. But the truth is that research is still in its early stages. Dr. Joseph Baur leads us through the science behind the hype.

    The bulk of this podcast was recorded live at the June 5, 2012 event "The Science Behind the Hype: Resveratrol in Red Wine and Chocolate," a part of the Locavore's Dilemma series. You can download the slides to accompany the lecture here.

    Brought to you by Science & the City and the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science.
