Hold up a Minute-Red Wine, How Healthy is it?

Fabricated data.

When it comes to a research study, there isn’t any more damning set of words. It turns out that the work of leading cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Dipak K. Das is being called into question after his employer, the Univesity of Connecticut found a number of irregularities with his data as well as his lab practices. More from CBS News.

While I don’t want to draw any firm conclusions in days after the main advocate for red wine’s health benefits has been called on the carpet, there are a few other studies which have come to the same conclusion-including one recently completed by the Mayo Clinic.

In any case, it will be interesting to see what transpires in the coming days and weeks after every subsequent study is called into question and investigated as well.
