The substances, anthocyanins, are believed to protect against heart disease through an anti-inflammatory effect and by fostering nitric oxide's (NO) action in relaxing blood vessels.

In a study scheduled for the Aug. 9 issue of the ACS' Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Giancarlo Folco and colleagues sprayed ripe grapes with a "plant activator" called S-methyl benzo-(1,2,3)-thiadiazole-7-carbothioate (BTH). They describe BTH as safe for consumers, noting that it is approved for use in protecting tomatoes against bacterial diseases and meets strict requ
