Alcohol Increases Breast Cancer Risk

A new study shows that drinking any type of alcohol increases a woman's chances of developing breast cancer.

Researchers found no difference in the risk of developing breast cancer among women who drank wine, beer, or liquor. Compared with light drinkers - those who had less than one drink a day - women who had one or two drinks a day increased their risk of developing breast cancer by 10 percent. Women who had more than three drinks a day raised their risk by 30 percent.
