Wine for health or for cancer.....

I don't really drink too much or too offten but when i do my ususal choice is red wine. The phenols in red wine and grapes are supposed to have antioxidant properties to help your. But sorry ladies, it just got worse. A new study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found women who drink 1 glass of wine each day raise their risk of certain cancers, like throat, breast and liver cancer, by as much as 22%. Experts examined survey answers from 1 million women in the U.K. and 68,775 cancer diagnoses over 7years. Findings also revealed drinking 2 glasses of wine day doubled risk; The Daily Telegraph reports.
That really sucks- i guess i'll just stick to the grapes
