Commentary on 'resveratrol commonly displays hormesis: occurrence and biomedical significance'

Hum Exp Toxicol. 2010 Dec;29(12):1018-20. doi: 10.1177/0960327110383627.

Abstract

The plan of attack for this Commentary is threefold. First: to consider, place in perspective and judge some of the claims that have been advanced for resveratrol's utility. Second: to evaluate and judge the scientific basis and validity of the paper being commented upon. The judgment is very positive. Third: to place in perspective the importance of hormesis in being a major factor determining resveratrol's ultimate efficacy.
