A Drink a Day Increases Women's Risk of Cancer

You've probably heard that a drink a day is OK, or that drinking a glass of wine a day has some health benefits. The wine claim is most commonly associated with drinking red wine. Red wine has been known to help reduce the risk of heart disease. Well, if you're a woman, you may want to reconsider that wine and that daily nightcap because it may increase the risk of cancer.

A new study to be published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute says that drinking one drink per day raises women's risk of cancer.

Alarming? Right? That's exactly what I thought. Check it out for yourself.
