A bit of booze might help women survive breast cancer, study finds
Alcohol can increase your chances of dying from cancer, but paradoxically, it might also help you survive a cancer diagnosis.

Those moderate drinkers are also 25 percent less likely to develop heart disease, which is recognized as a contributor to death among breast cancer survivors. "This is good news for women because it might help direct some of their choices after their diagnosis," said the study's lead author Polly Newcomb
