There’s no single, definite cause for breast cancer, and a lot of the risk factors simply cannot be avoided such as being a woman in her middle age. But there are some things that are believed to increase your risk.
Studies out of the UK are showing that regularly drinking alcohol, even as little as one drink a day, can increase your risk of breast cancer. Each year, around 3,000 cases of breast cancer are linked to alcohol. That’s not an insignificant number!
Check out this important message and please, think twice before consuming alcohol. Prevention is always better than a cure, and while limiting or avoiding your alcohol intake doesn’t mean you won’t get breast cancer at all (unfortunately, there’s no way to predict that), it will lower your risk.
