Alcohol never has and never will be good for your body!
The research finds that just one bottle of wine per week, which is about one glass per night, poses the same cancer risk as smoking five cigarettes a week for men and 10 cigarettes a week for women. For comparison, U.S. smokers consume roughly 14 cigarettes a day.
While that may seem shocking, the researchers point out that occasional drinking is not the same as smoking. Drinking one bottle of wine a week increases a man’s lifetime risk of cancer by 1 percent; it increases a woman’s by 1.4 percent.
