And again red wine enters the grand world of health breakthroughs! For those who like a glass or two of pinot noir, the news is...good! A new study has found that red wine could help women shield themselves from breast cancer.
Since cancer prevention is always a vital topic for us all, such breakthroughs like this are welcome. This one suggests women can use red wine -- in moderation only -- as a weapon against one of the major causes of death amongst U.S. women. The new study challenges the widely held belief that alcohol consumption in general increases one's risk of developing breast cancer. The notion has been that alcohol increases the body's estrogen levels, fostering the growth of cancer cells.
