According to Louisville Juice:

“A 2008 study from the University of Pittsburgh, indicates that red wine helps neutralize the effects of radiation exposure.

Resveratrol, the natural antioxidant commonly found in red wine and many plants, may offer protection against radiation exposure…When altered with acetyl, resveratrol administered before radiation exposure proved to protect cells from radiation in mouse models.”

Worried about radiation from Japan’s nuclear reactors finding their way to California, and causing cancer down the road?:…have a glass or three of red wine!
