Dr Greger says a new study finds all alcohol intake is carcinogenic. It seems something in our saliva turns alcohol into a carcinogenic. Less than a drink a day can increase the risk of breast cancer. One study finds a sip held in the mouth and spit out increases the risk. Watch products you use that have alcohol in them. Alcohol, in small quantities does lower the risk of heart disease. So do we take some and reap the benefits to our heart or the risks to breasts? A healthy plant-based diet almost eliminates the risks and greatly improves the benefits. Watch what you eat.
