Define 'live longer', and be specific.

There is resveratrol that turns on the sirtuin genes, which have been found to increase the life span of the C. elegans (worm). Resveratrol is also the chemical found in the skin of red grapes, which is used to make the French red wine, and consequently has been linked to prolonged life expectancy of the French people.
