For years Mr. Dipak Das was at the forefront of research into the healthy aspects of red wine. Over a period of seven years, Dr. Das conducted multiple studies on heart health and resveratrol, a compound found in red wine. The National Institutes of Health funded most of his work at the University of Connecticut medical school in Farmington. Numerous producers of nutritional supplements created resveratrol pills based on Dr. Das's research results. Countless red wine aficionados referenced his work as they poured their next glass of wine.
The University of Connecticut has completed an exhaustive three year examination of Dr. Das's research methods and conclusions and determined that some of the data was falsified. Particular attention was paid to research results derived from a gadget called a "Western blot." It is now believed that Dr. Das "adjusted" readings from this device in a way that made his research results more consistent. He is also believed to have improperly combined results from separate studies to arrive at results that are not supported by the data if kept separate.
Other studies have shown that red wine can improve your memory, control your body mass index, improve your resistance to infection and strengthen your bones. So don't despair, pour yourself a nice glass of merlot and congratulate yourself for never falsifying government-funded research!
