Red wine researcher Dr. Dipak K. Das falsified data, UConn says

By

Are all those studies linking red wine to longevity and better heart health nothing more than wishful thinking? Scientists are calling red wine studies into question over a report that a researcher at the University of Connecticut falsified data on more than 100 occasions.  UConn officials conducted an internal review into the work of Dr. Dipak K. Das, director of the cardiovascular research center at the university, after an anonymous tip. Das had been known in recent years for his research on the benefits of resveratrol, a compound found in red wine…According to the Mayo Clinic, some studies have showed resveratrol lowers levels of "bad" cholesterol and protects the lining of heart blood vessels.
