Drink wine don’t get sunburn

Yup that’s right scientists have connected booze to not getting sunburn.  Would someone please get Taylor Swift a bottle of Merlot.

The University of Barcelona and the Spanish National Research Council looked at the chemical reaction in the skin when hit by UV rays from the sun.

They found that flavonoids in the grapes can stop the chemical reaction that causes cells to die and therefore skin damage.

By the way Spain is about to go bankrupt…but they found the money to study booze.
