The good news just keeps pouring in! Scientists find that mice drinking red wine recover from strokes better than non-drinking mice! So, if you smoke pot and drink wine, this is good for the brain? Whoohoo! And next: brie makes you smarter! We liberals knew all this instinctually.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Red wine might work to protect the brain from damage after a stroke and drinking a couple of glasses a day might provide that protection ahead of time, U.S. researchers reported on Sunday.
In an effort to better understand how red wine works, the scientists from Johns Hopkins University fed mice a moderate dose of a compound found in red grape skins and seeds before inducing stroke-like damage.
Proof that I am very smart is that I like red wines more than white wines. Indeed, I can't stand white wines. I would be drinking Burgundy wine and people wince. But I like it and behold!
Today I can cheerfully drink to my own health. Wasshail!
I also always prefered red grapes to white grapes. I like the aroma and flavor of red grapes. The redder the grapes, the more I pop them in my mouth. This is now highly recommended by myself.
It is so nice to learn these little factoids!
