[at-l] Reason to carry wine...



Hic.cup.  Now we have a logical and sound reason to carry along some wine.
>>>Looking to build on previous anti-microbial research and anecdotal
evidence, Daeschel decided to take a hard, scientific look at a
centuries-old piece of advice: drinking wine with a meal helped some people
avoid food poisoning.
Daeschel, a professor of food science and technology at Oregon State
University in Corvalis, about 75 miles south of Portland, found that wine,
particularly white wine, kills E. coli, salmonella and other potentially
deadly bacteria.
He found that the combination of white wine's high levels of malic and
tartaric acids with the alcohol content attacks and kills the germs.<<<
This was on Reuters.  And the entire article states that they are developing
a disinfectant based on wine.  Plus wineries are already looking forward to
the final disinfectant so they can sell the wine that does not sell.  There
goes Thunderbird.
Now would you sell it in the disinfectant aisle or the wine aisle?
