We've heard a lot over the years about the health benefits of drinking wine, but here's the first I've heard about healthy beer . Rice University researchers are developing a strain of yeast that will produce the heart-healthy chemical resveratrol as a byproduct of the fermentation of grain. Resveratrol is the active compound in red wine that supposedly fights heart disease.
My take: Sounds good. Now, if they can only develop lower calorie brew that doesn't taste like Lite beer.
