There are numerous reports about the potential benefits of moderate wine drinking or perhaps a certain component inherent in the wine that may be good for people. Much of the research is done with red wines. Frequently cited as the reason for affecting health is the positive result from resveratrol a component of red wine.

Recently the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene learned that the National Institutes of Health completed a study showing that resveratrol can help in treating malaria. More studies need to done to verify that this will help malaria patients. It has been estimated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that 300 to 500 million people suffer from malaria each year. Many people die due to malaria, perhaps one million each year.  Hopefully future studies confirm that resveratrol is beneficial for malaria patients. For more detailed information, read the news release at ASTMH.
