This new study that came out isn’t good for wine drinkers.

Well.. this is odd.  I always see studies about how drinking a glass of wine a night is healthy for you…and now this?

A new study found that drinking one 750-milliliter bottle of wine per week carries the same cancer risk as smoking five to ten cigarettes, depending on your gender.

The study states this:   One bottle of wine per week is associated with an increased absolute lifetime cancer risk for non-smokers of 1.0% (men) and 1.4% (women). The overall absolute increase in cancer risk for one bottle of wine per week equals that of five (men) or ten cigarettes per week (women), the study concluded.

The research is the first of its kind to estimate the cigarette equivalent of alcohol with regard to cancer risk.

Well… If this is true, I think about 98% of the people I know are doomed.

They study also said this:  “It is well-established that heavy drinking is linked to cancer of the mouth, throat, voice box, gullet, bowel, liver and breast”

So…if you drink wine AND smoke.  yikes.
