Does Alcohol Increase the Risk of Breast Cancer?

For many years, research was inconclusive, leaving experts perplexed as to a potential link between alcohol use and breast cancer. Recently, many researchers have made this a primary focus of studies and experiments. The results are disturbing. As little as one glass of beer or wine per day does increase the risk of breast cancer in women. We are all used to hearing the media say that just one drink per day is healthy and nothing to worry about. That is not the case anymore. Now that we have conclusive studies showing the link between alcohol and breast cancer, no other deterrent should be necessary. Think about your future health and happiness and make the right decision now. Choose sobriety.  

Alcohol affects a woman’s hormones significantly. Alcohol can increase the amount of estrogen a woman’s body produces, and elevated estrogen levels are one of the number one causes of specific types of breast cancer. Abuse of alcohol can also damage the DNA in cells, creating injured cells that are unable to perform their roles within your body. These recent studies showed that cell damage and hormone compilations begin with as little as one drink for some women. Alcohol affects all women differently and could potentially be even worse for some of us.

Studies show that women that drink three or more alcoholic beverages per week have a 15 percent higher chance of developing breast cancer than women that don’t drink at all. Furthermore, women that drink in excess of three drinks per week increase their risk of breast cancer by 10 percent per additional daily drink. Those statistics are staggering! You deserve the most promising, rewarding, and fulfilling future possible. Make healthy, positive choices and smile knowing you are on a journey to that future.

Breast cancer is a horrific ordeal and something no one deserves. Take care of your body and make decisions that make your future brighter and minimize the risk of breast cancer.
