WHAT??!!  I thought that the study had shown several times the health BENEFITS of drinking wine.  I wish "these people" who do these studies would make up their minds.  But in further reading, it shows that drinking an entire bottle of wine is what is bad as the smoking cigarette thing.  So, I guess maybe i could see that... maybe??

It seems that it's a little worse for women than it is for men.  Weird, right?  The findings were from the journal BMC Public Health.  After drinking an ENTIRE bottle of wine, for men it was like smoking 5 cigarettes and for women it was like smoking 10 cigarettes.

"Gender differences result from levels of moderate drinking leading to a 0.8% absolute risk of breast cancer in female non-smokers." 

So now... it's bad to drink a whole bottle of wine...whether its red or white, right?  I just want to make sure that I get that straight.

Next week we will probably see how drinking water is bad for you... ok, that might be a stretch, but you never really know.

Cheers!
