In Vino: Pale Rider

Last month, we reported that "a molecule found in red wine ... has been shown to slow aging in worms, flies and mice." This was hailed as good news for Pinot noir drinkers, but what about folks with a passion for Chablis?
Although white wines contain no resveratrol (the wonder molecule that gives the Reds their healthy oomph), new information seems to indicate that "(t)he flesh of the grape can do the same job as the skin," which would seem to be why whites share some health characteristics with their more full-bodied cousins.
Of course, much more research will be required; when do we get a PayPal button here?
