Study: Drinking wine could prevent sunburn

Ditch the sunblock and grab some vino.

Though some studies conducted in the past advocate abstaining from drinking alcohol while hanging out in the sun, new research reveals that drinking wine may actually help prevent one from becoming sunburned.

The University of Barcelona and the Spanish National Research Council recently released their findings to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry that claim the flavonoids found in grapes (and wine) can stop the chemical reaction that causes skin cells to die when hit by harmful UV rays.
