Just one glass of wine a day linked to breast cancer: researchA review of research on alcohol and breast cancer has found that just one drink a day can increase the risk of breast cancer by five per cent.
Women drinking 'heavily' by having three or more drinks a day are up to 50 per cent more likely to develop breast cancer than those who abstain, it was found.
It could mean that thousands of cases of breast cancer in Britain each year are caused by alcohol.
There is no safe level of drinking, one drink can kill etc. etc.
Also from the Telegraph...
Glass of wine a day 'fights breast cancer'Women with breast cancer can boost their chances of surviving the disease by drinking a glass of wine a day, according to research.
Those who drink a medium-sized (175ml) glass a day cut their chance of dying within a decade of diagnosis by a fifth - from 20 to 16 per cent, say Cambridge University doctors.
So there you have it. If you want to avoid breast cancer, don't drink wine (or other alcoholic drinks—I assume the focus is on wine because it's the Telegraph). But if you develop breast cancer, be sure to drink plenty of the stuff.
Truly, as the philosopher Homer Simpson once said, alcohol is the cause of—and the solution to—all of life's problems.
