Drinking nightly glass of wine causes cancer
I knew the "one glass of wine a day is good for the heart" was wishful thinking on the part of alchoholic doctors but I didn't realize that it would kill you from cancer.

I prefer herbal remadies since doctors generally make me sick but

For years, many women have been buoyed by the news about one of life's guilty pleasures: That nightly glass of wine may not only take the edge off a day but also improve their health. Now it turns out that sipping pinot noir might not be such a good idea after all.
wine
A new study involving nearly 1.3 million middle-aged British women -- the largest ever to examine alcohol and cancer in women -- found that just one glass of chardonnay, a single beer or any other type of alcoholic drink per day increases the risk of a variety of cancers.

"That's the take-home message," said Naomi E. Allen of the University of Oxford, who led the study being published March 4 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. "If you are regularly drinking even one drink per day, that's increasing your risk for cancer."

Understandably, the study may leave many women scratching their heads, given all the talk about red wine being something akin to a fountain of youth.

"I thought drinking wine was good for you," said Mirella Romansini, 27, of Chevy Chase, outside Paul's liquor store in Northwest Washington. "Now they are saying it increases your risk for cancer? Yes, I would say I'm surprised."

hahaha

Honestly though; it seems like nowadays every food is said to either cause or cure cancer, and they seem to change monthly. Just don't worry about it.

Anyone who cares, other than those who have previously had cancer, is an idiot.

I think using the wine most people drink, with all the preservatives and shit, is a more accurate test overall than using some organic home-brewed wine that only a tiny minority actually drink. Given that this is based on people's everyday habits.

Re: Drinking nightly glass of wine causes cancer
What they fail to point out is that mass produced wine is full of upto 80 different chemicals, and it's these that are bad for you - not the alcohol! In fact sulphites have been directly linked to mouth, throat and abdominal cancer as well as asthma. Good red wine contains natural anti oxidants which are actually beneficial at combatting cancer-causing free radicals in the body, so is actually GOOD at PREVENTING cancer! Just make sure you drink good wine, made naturally - look at Mediteranean countries where the "peasants" drink wine like water and live till they're 100!

Re: Drinking nightly glass of wine causes cancer
ok, i hope to set some things straight.

the study that determined that red grapes help prevent cancer was done on lab rats who were given insane amounts of extract daily. yes, it did show effects beneficial to cancer.

However, There is no way you could ever get the amount of red grapes as those rats did from drinking wine.

it was a stupid myth to begin with to say that drinking wine prevents cancer
