Booze and Bowel Cancer
Well, I doubt the local frat-boys are worried about this, but, new research links alcohol to the development of bowel cancer. The Cancer Blog is on it:
The research concluded that people who drink one or two glasses of beer or win per day increase their chances of developing rectal (bowel) cancer by 10 percent. Is that number such a big deal? Absolutely.For Dr. Fuhrman’s thoughts on alcohol, read this post: Alcohol and Your Health.
Sound like a low amount? It's not -- and the researchers apparently looked at more than 500,000 people in the study, so the results are quite statistically significant. Out of that population, 18,000 people were found to have bowel cancer and the researchers dug in deep until they found out the correlation(s) with certain lifestyle choices.
