A new study discovers that drinking even a small portion of an alcoholic drink, wine, beer or hard liquor, on a daily basis increases the risk of developing breast cancer.
To better understand the relationship between alcohol and the risk of breast cancer, a team of scientists evaluated data from 10 previous studies that included pre-menopausal women and 22 studies with post-menopausal women.
Their analysis showed solid evidence that drinking the equivalent of a small glass of wine or beer daily increases the risk of pre-menopausal breast cancer by 5%, and in post-menopausal women by 9%.
Lead author Dr. Anne McTiernan says: “We tried looking separately at beer, wine, and spirits, but none jumped out as being more or less problematic. They all showed the same trends.”
A new study, conducted by the Spanish researchers, finds that drinking a glass of water in turn of one fizzy drink or beer may significantly lower the obesity risk.
For the study, a team of researchers followed 15,765 healthy university graduates checking their consumption of common drinks, such as whole milk, reduced-fat milk, skimmed milk, milkshake, wine, beer, spirits, sugar-sweetened soda beverages, diet soda beverages, regular coffee, decaffeinated coffee, fresh orange juice, fresh non-orange juice, bottled juice, tap water and bottled water.
The research found that 873 participants that became obese with mathematical modeling showing drinking a glass of water instead of a fizzy drink or a beer a day the risk of obesity by 20%. Swapping a sugar-sweetened beverage with water was connected to the 15% lower risk of developing obesity.
