A small daily glass of red wine can help improve the chance of life after death according to research published in the medical journal 'The Lance-it!'
The health benefits of drinking moderate quantities of red wine have long been known to medical science but this is the first time it has been suggested it can prolong life beyond the grave.
'We know that half a daily glass of red wine can cause limbs to grow again,' said Dr James Wilson who said he 'enjoyed a tipple now and again'.
'Now we believe that mice injected with a half glass of a decent Shiraz Cabernet every day appear to arise from the dead,' Dr Wilson said.
'The Lance-it!' recently claimed that half an aspirin tablet a day improved the chances of eternal youth.
But doctors also warn that too much red wine could reduce a drinker's life-expectancy to 150 years.
