"Laboratory tests have shown that a chemical found in the skin of grapes could halt the development of most cases of the disease.
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women, and almost 45,000 cases are diagnosed in the UK every year.
Now scientists have found that a chemical called resveratrol, which is also found in blueberries, bilberries, cranberries and peanuts, can suppress the creation of tumour cells.
The chemical works by blocking the way that oestrogen combines with DNA in a woman's bodies to create the cancer.
Researchers found that even low levels of resveratrol, the equivalent to that found in a typical glass of red wine, was enough to create the effect."
But alcohol increases the risk of developing breast cancer. - See http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1585095/A-little-alcohol-%27increases-breast-cancer-risk%27.html so the fact that red wine contains low levels of resveratrol is a red herring really. - To minimise risk of breast cancer, alcohol intake should be minimised. - Get your resveratrol from the fruits themselves...(o:
