Red Wine Keeps Muscles Big

"Exercise in a bottle?" Well, not in a bottle, but somewhere. And if you can't exercise, you can drink red wine because it has this thing they just discovered called resveratrol in it, which may counteract the effects of a sedentary lifestyle. Specifically, rats in weightlessness preserved their muscle mass and bone density when they got resveratrol, whereas those who didn't take it showed atrophy and early diabetes.

So, this is good for astronauts. And what's good for the astronauts, is good for America.
