Wine Color Won't Change Breast Cancer Risk
Date:3/9/2009

The researchers found that women who drink more than 14 drinks per week had a 24 percent increased risk of breast cancer. However, in this study, wine consumption was not associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, though it wasn't associated with any benefit either.

"So many causes of cancer are unknown, but alcohol is a modifiable risk factor for breast cancer," said Newcomb, who suggested that if women choose to drink alcohol at all, they should limit their consumption to no more than one drink per day.

Oncologist Dr. Virginia Kaklamani, from Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, agreed. "Drinking a small amount of alcohol is generally not harmful, but more than two drinks a day can become harmful," she said.

And, women who have other risk factors for breast cancer, such as a family history or obesity, should talk with their doctor about how alcohol might affect their risk profile.
