A drink a day increases risk of cancer for women

(I had posh in mind when I wrote this, and every other women I know)

"A glass of wine each evening is enough to increase your risk of developing cancer, women are being warned. The risk goes up the more you drink, whether spirits, wine or beer, the data on over a million women suggests. Overall, alcohol is to blame for about 13% of breast, liver, rectum, mouth and throat cancers, the researchers say. "

Hmm they sorta drink a lot though, don't they?


  1. tab 7tarna... it is also said that a glass of wine is good for the heart!
    Now it is causing cancer..

    Should women now make a compromise between having a heart attack or suffering of cancer? hmmmm

  2. Rami,

    the heart attack can be dealt with through other means - naturally, through grapes and the berry family.


    what news for me... I haven't had alcohol in over 3 years hehe. But, if you think about it, we need to quit everything in our lives in order to be cancer free. Every little thing around us increases cancer by a certain percentage.

  3. here's what I think.. these "scientific" studies are bullshit... every year (and I mean it, every year) they come up with a different study.. is milk good or bad, is drinking a lot of water good or bad now.. is margarine still better than butter or are we back to butter now... I lost count... how about olive oil? where are we at now...

    fuck off!

    do everything you want with moderation and just have fun...

  4. true true, bass apparently those english ladies are consuming a bit TOO much and relatively they consider them to be moderate. I mean I take a drink per week and I thought am drinking a lot lol.

  5. Let me tell you the story of my best friend's mom who died one week after they diagnosed a lung cancer.
    Did she smoke? NEVER!
    Did she ever drink? NEVER (she was too religious).
    Physical activities? 3 TIMES week and jogging on raouche every sunday morning.
    Was she fat? Nop
    Family thing? Nop
    Am I gonna think abt cancer everytime I sip a drink? Definitely not!

    MODERATION IS THE KEYWORD!!! and the rest os just written somewhere or destiny or whatever you wanna call it!
