Bad news for all drinkers out there. A recent study conducted by our cousins across the Atlantic has linked alcohol consumption with cancer later in life. This even includes "casual drinkers" (one to two drinks per day). New research indicates even one drink per day significantly increases the risk of cancer in women. Any alcohol (beer, spirits, and wine) was associated with the increased risk of cancer.
How about the cardiovascular benefits of alcohol? Heart disease is the number one killer of Americans, but since cancer is a killer in my family...I'll abstain from a daily drink for now.
