    A single dose of resveratrol up to 5,000 mg, a compound found in grapes and red wine that has anti-obesity properties, did not cause any serious side effects when given to humans noted Pamela Fischer-Posovszky, PhD, a researchers at Ulm University's Diabetes and Obesity Unit located in Ulm, Germany who presented findings of a her new study at The Endocrine Society's 90th Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California, USA on June 17th, 2008.

    However, she also noted that another study "theorized that resveratrol may stimulate the growth of human breast cancer cells, possibly because resveratrol's chemical structure is similar to a phytoestrogen, an estrogen-like substance found in some plants."
