A single alcoholic drink per day can increase your risk of developing certain types of cancer, including breast cancer in women?

I am not happy with this! And they told us a glass a wine a day is good!

  • LOL...........I've heard any type of alcohol in moderation can be healthy, only red wine is healthy, no alcohol at all is many different opinions!

  • You read that somewhere, and somewhere else I read that you should drink one alcoholic drink per day to help decrease the risks of those things. I'm with the others - don't overdo it, but enjoy what you want to enjoy.

  • There is pretty much a finding for every opinion out there. I tend to go with the one that makes me happiest.

  • None of us will make it out alive. So we might as well have a little fun, in moderation.

  • The way I see it, I'm going to die eventually anyway (and, honestly, who would want to live forever?). Therefore, I am going to do what I want (within reason) to live as happily as I can. There will always be a study to back up everything. We just don't lnow what will take us out of when.

  • And, that study may only mean grain alcohol. And, since wine is just fermented grape, I think that should be fine.
