There is a new best seller out which advocates the health benefits of red wine based on research into the French Paradox and the Mediteranean Effect (why people who live there have longer lives). Roger Corder, Professor of Experimental Therapeutics at the William Harvey Research Institute in London, has spent several years studying the properties of red wine and the health status of its drinkers worldwide - the fruits of which he has now presented in his new, ground-breaking book, The Wine Diet, which comes with the promising subtitle "a complete nutrition and lifestyle plan".
Little, Brown UK published The Wine Diet in December 2006 and immediately sold through their first printing. The book has been a huge hit with the UK press, getting a major five-part serial in The Daily Telegraph and appearing in everything from food and wine columns to the tabloids.
