Switch To Lower Alcohol Wine And Reduce Cancer Risk

Dienstag 19. Januar 2010 von htm

A cancer charity said on Monday that if people in the UK who regularly drank a large glass of wine a day were to switch to a lower alcohol alternative they could reduce their risk of bowel cancer by seven per cent. …
„For cancer prevention, it is best not to drink any alcohol at all; but modest amounts may have a protective effect for heart disease.“ Take bowel cancer, for example, the WCRF calculated that the seven per cent reduction in risk of bowel cancer gained by drinking 10 per cent instead of 14 per cent alcoholic wine, translates roughly to a reduction from six people in 100 in the UK getting the disease to five people. ..They said that switching to lower-strength alcohol wine also reduces the risk of a number of other cancers, including of the breast, liver, oesophagus, mouth, pharynx and larynx.
