Red wine contained more polyphenols – compounds which can protect against developing certain cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and neurodegenerative conditions – he conceded.
“But both dark chocolate and blueberries contained more,” the professor added.
“Maybe the conversation shouldn’t be driven by health but by which wine makes food taste better,” he said.
