The most revealing sentence in the whole article:

Dr. Korakot Chanjirakul and colleagues at Kasetsart University

STUMBLED upon their finding unexpectedly….(that)…

Any colored fruit might be made even more healthful with the

addition of a splash of alcohol…

I’ll drink to that!

This is good news. I am going to get a healthy workout this weekend!

BTW, note the last line of the report? It reads:

"The study did not address whether adding a little cocktail umbrella enhanced the effects."
