What do you think about Resveratrol, a supposed wonder drug that claims to put the body into a hyper drive effect thus enabling you to lose weight and feel healthier. There was a documentary on 60 Minutes about it. The key is a bi-product of wine - the grape really, that seems to fight off bacteria and disease. The founder said that to get the kind of 'health' that you get from Resveratrol you would have to drink 1000 bottles of red wine.
"From a position of this sort, if the enemy is unprepared, you may sally forth and defeat him. But if the enemy is prepared for your coming, and you fail to defeat him, then, return being impossible, disaster will ensue." -- Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Basically, the results have been inflated to make it sound good so another supplement can sell based on fake research. Taking Resveratrol actually decreased the efficiency of people during workouts!
