Are you kidding me?

Ok.  Not so happy with the latest headline.  “Million Women Study Shows even Moderate Alcohol Consumption Associated with Increase Cancer Risks.”  Basically, the take-away message from this study is don’t drink, at all, ever!  I’m not much of a drinker.  In fact, after throwing up through several weeks of 3 pregnancies and going through chemotherapy, I’ll do anything to avoid a hangover.  But, I do love a glass of wine.  And I’m not certain I’m so willing to give it up completely.  I’m curious if this study dug deeper into cancer recurrences, BRCA or anything else specific to my situation.  I guess I’m just trying to rationalize my way out of practicing the advice of the latest study.  You can take away my breasts, ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes, but do you really need to take away my glass of wine?
