  • We have tested the hypothesis that the alcoholic and phenolic components of wine are protective against the DNA-damaging and cytotoxic effects of hydrogen peroxide and gamma-radiation in vitro. The components of wine tested were ethanol, glycerol, a mixture of the phenolic compounds catechin and caffeic acid and tartaric acid, all at concentrations that were 2.5 or 10.0% of the concentration in a typical Australian white wine (Riesling). These components were tested individually or combined as… CONTINUE READING
