Now Your Booze Is Giving You Breast Cancer


It’s been a few week since we’ve had an update on whether alcohol is extending your life or hastening your demise, so it’s time for an update. A new study says that women who drink as little as one glass of wine a day increase their breast cancer risk by 1.2 times. Researchers believe alcohol might boost the level of hormones in the blood, increasing your chances of developing cancer, but they aren’t really sure what’s going on. Don’t bother emptying out your wine rack, or you’ll be rushing to the liquor store when researchers decide moderate drinking is healthy again.
