Give These Kids A Grant. Now!

If a group of visionary college students at Rice University has its way, one day, we'll be able to lift a pint against heart disease and cancer.
"They're using genetic engineering to create beer that contains resveratrol, a chemical in wine that's been shown to reduce cancer and heart disease in lab animals." (Here.)
Unfortunately, their brilliant concept is just getting off the drawing boards. In the meantime, pour me a vino, won't you?.
