Jamaica Gleaner - - HEALTH -

A re­cent study showed the link be­tween drink­ing and breast can­cer was es­pe­cially strong in the 70 per cent of tu­mors known as hor­mone-sen­si­tive. Al­co­hol, con­sumed even in small amounts, is be­lieved to in­crease the risk of breast can­cer. Most doc­tors rec­om­mend cut­ting back on wine, beer, and hard liquor.
