How does alcohol affect cancer?

The French Paradox.

Numerous studies on cancer show that drinking alcohol can increase your risk of cancer as much as 50%. However, the French whose favorite beverage is wine, also has one of the lowest cancer rates in the world. What do you do? If you want a glass of wine, have one. Other studies show that the bioflavaniods in the deep, red wines help prevent cancer, which leads researchers to believe the French might be right. As with all foods and drink, enjoy in moderation. Cheers!
