Ladies, Beware of the Six-Letter Word

women and alcohol
Cancer May Be a Drink Away.
A fun night at that trendy restaurant or bar with the girlfriends won’t be complete without a drink or two or three. However, you may want to think twice about that having that second drink. According to a research study conducted by the National Cancer Institute, women drinking 14 drinks a week carry a 30 to 60 percent greater risk of developing breast cancer. You might be thinking that 14 drinks a week is an excessive amount, but it breaks down to about 2 drinks a day. If you have a glass or two of wine every day at dinner, then a few more drinks at happy hour, then party on Saturday, then this number is very possible and realistic. So what is a safe amount of alcohol for a woman to consume? According to the study’s author, Dr. Claudine Isaacs, professor of oncology at the Georgetown University Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, no more than one drink a day would be considered safe for women. Drinking alcohol can be a slippery slope. As many of us know, one drink can lead to several. All that alcohol in our bodies can lead to several health complications. If you feel like you can’t control your alcohol intake or if you feel that having a good time depends on drinking several alcoholic drinks, then you may have a problem. Alcohol rehab may be the way to break the dependence from alcohol. At Stepping Stone Center, you will receive the best treatment for alcohol addiction. You don’t have to put your health at risk.
