It is common knowledge that excessive alcohol consumption carries serious health risks; however most women wouldn’t think twice about raising a glass or two. Research has shown, though, that even low and moderate drinking can increase one’s risk of developing breast cancer.
The Alcohol Research Group (ARG) has created a comprehensive website to educate the public about the association between alcohol and breast cancer. To be clear, drinking alcohol does not cause breast cancer, but having even one alcoholic beverage per day can increase a woman’s risk of developing the disease, a risk which is exponential with each additional drink consumed.
