In response to “Study: Alcohol increases chance of breast cancer by 30 percent.”
As a Ph.D. scientist and Napa Valley winemaker devoted to the cause of ending breast cancer, this issue hits very close to home. We have thoroughly researched the scientific literature and found the following:
1. There is consistent scientific evidence that alcohol intake may increase the risk of breast cancer.
2. There is consistent scientific information from around the world indicating that adequate levels of folate (folic acid) may reduce the excess risk of breast cancer associated with alcohol consumption.
We are hopeful that future articles will enlighten people about folate’s ability to reduce the increased risk of breast cancer associated with alcohol consumption.
