Breast cancer linked to alcohol consumption

There is a new body of research which is discussed here which quite clearly links alcohol consumption to breast cancer. Even a small amount. I heard the English woman who is trying to interpret the research data and then what needs to be followed up on the radio. It was made clear that the glass of red for your heart may be doing other damage. It is always so hard to work out what to do to be on the right side of health. One thing made clear on the programme is that women really didn’t used to drink but now they work and have gained financial independence then their alcohol consumption has increased, as has breast cancer. I am just glad they are starting to find out why women are at risk. I don’t care whether we like what we hear or not, we just need to stop suffering from breast cancer. This study is very clear in its findings and we can listen or not.
