Bar Drinks

Hitting the bar and tossing back more than three drinks a day is bad news foe women. It ups the risk of breast cancer by a whopping 30%. And that holds good for any type of drink-beer, wine or spirits. Researches of Kaiser Permanente, a leading health plan organization in California, USA also found that puffing away on apck or more of cigarettes a day is related to a similar increased risk of breast cancer by 30%. The trigger for breast cancer is the ethyl alcohol content found in all types of drink, says Arthur Klatsky, one of the researches. Women who quaffed between one and two alcoholic drinks a day increased their risk of breast cancer by 10% compared with those who consumed less than one drink each day. Another good reason to give the bottle a miss.
