Red wine increases the risks of breast cancer

Last month, research showed that drinking alcohol increases the risks of breast cancer, but researchers, led by Polly Newcomb from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, wanted to analyze red wine specifically because it has been shown to have beneficial effects on prostate cancer and heart disease.

This recent study, published in the March issue of Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention, showed no difference between red or white wine when it comes to breast cancer risks; both increase the risk of the disease.

hmmm… now alcohol is carcinogenic? What’s left? Oxygen?

I don’t drink alcohol so I have not much to worry about, personally. But, I mean it’s sad that others who drink shall not be enjoying their drink as much as they’d like to.
