Researchers from Sweden's Lund University believe that vinegar decreases the body's insulin response to a carbohydrate meal, which results in the eater feeling full.
Health benefits claimed include lowering of cholesterol levels, improving circulation and countering fatigue.
Scientific research published over the past two years has also shown that acetic acid in vinegar is effective against high blood pressure.
In Japan, vinegar has long been associated with health.
Vinegar based drinks are available in the UK at sushi bars such as Yo!
Sushi, the health food chain Fresh And Wild and at Selfridges.
Venom from the world's deadliest snake is being turned into a drug for heart failure.
The common taipan is often 8ft long and is found in Australia.
In a single strike, a taipan can inject 60mg of venom - enough to paralyse and kill a small marsupial or even a human adult.
Substances in the snake's venom have been shown to stop heart failure patients getting worse.
Heart failure - which can often be fatal - occurs when the heart becomes too weak to pump blood round the body.
It is responsible for 20,000 deaths in the UK every year.
Professor Paul Alewood, of Queensland University says a 'unique set of active molecules' had been isolated from taipan venom.
"Initial tests indicate these molecules are extremely effective at easing the heart's workload," he says.
If trials go well, the new drug could be available in 18 months.
