The secret to the French Paradox
|For years, scientists have studied the
phenomenon known as the "French Paradox." The French have a diet
filled with saturated fat and cholesterol, yet they have the lowest rate
of heart disease of any western society-nearly half that of the U.S. Why?
Some scientists believe the answer lies in the red wine the French
drink-specifically, the polyphenolic bioflavonoids concentrated inside the
grape seeds, which end up in the wine. In fact, that's why some experts
believe that red wine is more healthful than white, since red wine is
fermented with the seeds while white wine is not.
