LONDON - Red wine, already thought to be good for your heart, may be good for your lungs, too.

A study has found that a compound in red wine could help fight chronic bronchitis and emphysema, although scientists say there is probably not enough of it in a glass for chronic sufferers to drink their way to good health.

The study found that the substance, resveratrol, which is found in the skin of red grapes, could reduce the amount of harmful chemicals in the lungs that cause the diseases.
