Eating grapes can reduce the risk of heart disease, Israeli researchers believe. According to a Rambam Hospital study published this month in the U.S.-based Journal of Nutrition after two years of research, grapes in powdered form, fed to mice who had been exposed to high levels of cholesterol, reduced their risk of heart attack by 50 percent compared to a control group. The grapes’ salutary value was ascribed to anti-oxidants in their skin.
