Is it time to give up wine with dinner?

A study from the University of Reading has demonstrated that all types of alcohol can raise the risk of seven types of cancers, including mouth, upper throat, breast, and bowel cancer.

This could be due to a chemical our bodies produce, to process alcohol.  This chemical, called acetaldehyde, can damage DNA.

While some damage occurs by chance, our findings suggest that drinking alcohol can increase the risk of this damage,” professor Ketan Patel said.

Other lifestyle habits are associated with increased cancer risk like lack of sleep, processed foods, sugary drinks and smoking are other contributing factors.
