Who Wants To Live Forever? Part 2 

A trio of teams, working in tandem, have found that a compound called resveratrol, found in red wine, slows aging in yeast, fruitflies, and nematodes. Pretty cool. I wonder if it has its effects via Indy? Regardless, any excuse to drink more red wine will do!

Semi-related, Oregon researchers have developed a new antimicrobial, edible food wrapping from chitosan and lysozyme, which could possibly revolutionize shipment and storage. If this means I can reclaim that cabinet currently filled with tupperware, I'm thrilled!
