I thought some might enjoy this (http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&taxonomyName=Development&articleId=9117656&taxonomyId=11&pageNumber=1). Apparently a chemical found in wine, reservatrol, is believed to reduce the risk of developing cancer and heart disease so they're trying to produce a genetically modified strain of yeast that will make both alcohol and reservatrol. The yeast won't be available for a long but I'd love to get my hands on some and use it to make my beer!

This will make a nice complement to my Carbon Tetrachloride Whiskey.

Wow, maybe someday the AIDS "cocktail" will actually be a cocktail.

Cheers!
