This is a huge blow to the Pink movement. Breast cancer is now caused by being an Alcoholic, they are going to want to suppress/refute that information to keep it mainstream and politically safe.

The biggest blow to the pink movement is the person and organization leading it.

@vpoint 's article below points out that alcohol increases the level of estrogen in the body, "a hormone important in the growth and development of breast tissue. This could affect a woman’s risk of breast cancer. "

Cancel the party mates. Yes to prostate. Read the article.

Growing evidence suggested that alcohol was also likely to cause skin, prostate and pancreatic cancer,

Doesn't work. Meat consumption for example promotes a growth hormone which is linked in promoting cancer - it takes 2 weeks meatfree to go back to baseline so you won't unless you go full vegan which has it's own problems. In general plant oil overconsumption is linked to problems i already forgot about. Sugar overconsumption can go up to diabetes. The list goes on and that's not even including freak accidents like sleeper genes activating and killing you with potent poison the plant naturally could produce.

Safety overall is just a dream.

What about a glass of red wine a day helps combat cancer and has antioxidants.

Coffee is good for you

Coffee is bad for you

Coffee is good for you?

I think this is all flavor of the month shit.

Honestly, the wine thing is just something people who like to have an excuse to drink drop when challenged. If it's not being used for sanitation, alcohol has no place in a healthy diet. But people like to drink so they don't wanna hear it.

Alcohol has been part of Humans diet going back to before we had shoes for our feet. I think it is safe to say alcohol is not good for you but I know way too many people that are into their 80's and 90's that have a stiff one daily.

My assertions is Doctors cause cancer in patients.

PNET Tumors on liver pancreas and left kidney. Kept getting horrific bouts of vomitting,docs always attributed it to my poor diet,but after three years they finally did a test and found it. Now Im on a daily chemo pill meant to slow down its growth,but there isnt any fix for it.

Not too bad all things considered,certainly could be worse. Besides,the state the world is in,maybe I get off easy!

I was putting away a 12pk a day on average for several years.It was so bad I couldnt have a social life.

Now my friends and I just play ludicrous amounts of MTG and do the occasional friday night magic tourney.
