Dear Journalists/Editors, 
 
Please note that the story below on red wine should not have gone out on
the New Scientist press release yesterday - apologies for any confusion
this has caused.

Although it is reported in New Scientist magazine this week, the story
actually originated from a Nature paper, and should have been referenced
as such in the magazine. If you wish to find out more about this story
please contact Ruth Francis, Nature Press Officer: press at nature.com

 
WHY FRENCH RED IS BEST FOR THE HEART

If you want to toast yourself to a long life, choose a red wine from
south-west France.

Scientists in London have identified a compound called procyanidin as
the component in red wine responsible for making it good for your heart.
The team also found that wines from south-west France and Sardinia
contain more procyanidins than other red wines. Page 17

 
Kind regards,
