Quick! Make this diet change today so you don't join the record number of under-50s with breast cancer!

by , 03 May 2013

If you're female, under-50 and you drink alcohol - whether it's a little or a lot - you're at high risk of developing breast cancer. Because researchers have just revealed that the reason behind the high rate of breast cancer discovered in young women is because of their increasing consumption of alcohol. Here's why you need to cut the ‘cancer juice' from your diet today!

Heavy drinker?
Best you get the habit under control, as doctors identified 10,068 new cases of breast cancer among under-50s in Britain in a single year.
That’s the first time the total has hit five figures, says The Telegraph
And heavy drinking’s largely to blame, as young women are drinking more alcohol than ever before.
Even moderate drinkers of alcohol have a higher risk of developing breast cancer
So while binge drinkers are most at risk, every daily drink raises the risk of the condition - even if you stay within the recommended limits of no more than two alcoholic drinks per day, says Wikipedia.
In fact, just a glass-and-a-half a day or less of alcohol could actually raise your cancer risk, says BU Today.
That’s why Professor Mark Bellis of the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University, says the risk of breast cancer starts pretty well from drinking any amount of alcohol, so abstinence is the best answer overall.
Especially as most of these cases are detected late as younger women aren’t as concerned about breast cancer as they don’t go for mammograms yet, says FSP Health.

That’s why it’s a good idea to switch to a healthier lifestyle and make the switch from alcohol to drinking more water.
So if you’ve turned to red wine for its ‘breast cancer-fighting properties’, rather go for other rich sources of resveratrol that won’t harm your health, like red grape juice and mulberry juice, says WebMD.
You’ll be healthier in the long run and safe in the knowledge that you’ve reduced your risk of developing breast cancer.
