Decrease Breast Cancer Risk With Red Wine!
Red Wine Cuts Breast Cancer Risk!
According to a recent article published in The Journal of Women's Health, researchers found that elements in red wine protect against the most common form of breast cancer--but not white wine!
In another study done at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, it was found that women who consumed red wine had small reductions in their estrogen levels--but not in those who drank white wine. This is important because alcohol, over all, increases the body's levels of estrogen. Estrogen is the factor that fuels the most common type of breast cancer.
The Doctors Speak...
Why is red wine better than white when it comes to breast-cancer prevention? Dr. Braunstein, Cedars-Sinai says it best, "There are chemicals in red grape skin and red grape seeds that are not found in white grapes that may decrease breast cancer risk..."
Apparently, the researchers think these findings are dramatic because Dr. Shufelt, Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, states, "If you were to have a glass of wine with dinner, you may want to consider a glass of red... "Switching may shift your risk."
