This new edition of Age Gets Better with Wine takes a fresh look at the science and reaffirms that daily moderate wine drinking remains a potent anti-aging strategy. Why do wine drinkers outlive nondrinkers and enjoy better health and mental function, especially later in life? Age Gets Better with Wine was the first book to comprehensively discuss the multiple ways that wine contributes to improved lifetime health. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Baxter's interest in the subject grew from an in-depth review of anti-aging science. What he found was that all serious studies on anti-aging intersected in one way or another on wine. The discovery of wine's miracle molecule, resveratrol, appeared to provide a unifying answer to the question and reinforced wine's role in healthy living. But despite continued advances in wine and health science, new challenges to the notion of healthy drinking have emerged. Neo-prohibitionists openly question the validity of studies supporting any level of drinking, while others attribute the entire benefit to resveratrol and suggest supplements instead. An objective analysis shows the fallacy of both views.
