Is resveratrol a miracle cure for cancer?

Is resveratrol a miracle cure for cancer?

Despite media claims, really good work on this interesting molecule remains in its infancy -- it's likely to have some real uses, but probably is no magic bullet for any. ...Read more

Is it safe for men to take trans-resveratrol supplement? Because it has phytoestrogens

Is it safe for men to take trans-resveratrol supplement? Because it has phytoestrogens
