Half a glass of red wine a day could protect you from colon cancer, scientists have discovered.

The study found that a diet rich in grapes can help prevent the third most common form of cancer, one that kills more than half a million people worldwide and over 16,000 in Britain every year.

The University of California, Irvine cancer researchers found an ingredient in grapes, called resveratrol, blocks a chemical pathway that helps cancer spread.

They hope that as well as preventing cancer, the discovery could lead to new therapies for sufferers.
