Red grapes and red wine may have the potential to protect against hearing and cognitive decline, according to a new study. Resveratrol, a substance found in red grapes and red wine, according to a published laboratory study from Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, shows that healthy rats are less likely to suffer the long-term effects of noise-induced hearing loss when given resveratrol before being exposed to loud noise for a long period of time. “Our latest study focuses on resveratrol and its effect on bioinflammation, the body’s response to injury and something that is believed to be the cause of many health problems including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, aging and hearing loss,” lead author Michael D. Seidman said. *** Fifty Shades of Grey film to be out summer ’14 Los Angeles: The movie adaptation of E.L.
