    Default Are you a wine lover?

    Hi friends, I thought I should share this information with you... do you know Two glasses of wine a day risks mouth cancer.

    Two glasses of wine a day can increase the risk of mouth cancer by up to 75 per cent, scientists warned.

    The research also showed two units of alcohol daily raises the risk of breast cancer by 22 per cent.

    It also found that men who drink four units of alcohol a day increase their risk of bowel cancer by 64 per cent.

    Other research had previously showed that moderate amounts of red wine could have health benefits and may help to prevent heart disease and strokes.

    But the Australian report by the Cancer Institute in New South Wales, found there is no safe level of alcohol and said drinking should be kept to an absolute minimum.

    The institute’s chief executive, Professor Jim Bishop, said: “Alcohol is a well established carcinogen and is known to increase the risk of several cancers.”

    Researchers also found two small glasses a of wine a day raised the risk of cancer of the oesophagus by 50 per cent and cancer of the larynx by 40 per cent.

    Drinking eight units a day raised the risk of mouth or throat cancer by four to six times compared to a non-drinker.

    Professor Bishop said: “We don’t want a general scare, but the fact is that alcohol consumption on a regular basis, even at moderate levels, can increase the risk.

    “Clearly for cardiac disease it may be that red wine is helpful, but for cancer we cannot see any benefit at all from alcohol.”

    Is it the wine that is carcenagenic or the sulphates that are sprayed on the grape?
    I'd imagine "fresh" fruit from the supermarket , which are sprayed with a cocktail of chemicals till they shine almost plastic like,contains a greater health threat. I prefer to nick mine from the neighbours orchard.

    Ignore it, BW. It's just spamming for its stunningly scaremongering US based blog. The consensus is that a moderate (ie one to two drinks a day) intake of alcohol, especially red wine, is of health benefit.
    According to this scaremongerer, everything gives you cancer - a drink, oral sex, god knows what.
    I'm not a medic, but I can speak medicalese and this blog heavily overstates their case throughout.
    And even if everything they write is true, which it isn't particularly, I'd still rather live in a world with fine wine and blowjobs, thank you very much.

    Life. It'll kill you, so we all have a choice to enjoy it or not. As JC Skinner said, a life without either wine or blowjobs wouldn't be worth a damn.
