Drinking More Can Prevent Breast Cancer!
Here's some interesting News:
Researchers followed a group of women for 30 years and discovered there's a link between light drinking and an increased risk of breast cancer. The link between alcohol and breast cancer isn't new, but previous research found no risk for light drinkers. All that has changed. New results found women who drink just three alcoholic beverages a week face slightly higher chances for developing breast cancer.
The researchers aren't saying alcohol causes the disease -- so why the increase? Maybe drinkers are less active that non-drinkers? Maybe their diets are unhealthy? Those are questions they're still trying to answer.
Conclusion, according to a doctor: "'If you don't drink, don't start. If you drink one drink a day and you're not considered in a high risk group for breast cancer, you can continue to do that... If you drink two or more a day, you need to cut back, and that's where I will go with my patients until we have more information."
