Drinking Wine Linked to Lower Risk of Lung Cancer

Just got the news from good ole’ Wine Spectator.  (http://www.winespectator.com/Wine/Features/0,1197,4171,00.html)

Of note however is that beer & spirits led to elevated risk.  “Drinking wine is associated with a lower risk of developing lung cancer, according to a meta-analysis published in the November issue of Cancer Epidemiological Markers & Prevention. Those who consume more than one serving of beer or spirits in any amount, however, were found to have an elevated risk.”

Yeah, I know, “THEY come out with a new study every day”…but hey, we believe what we want to believe anyway right?

So drink away friends – it is good for you (in moderation of course)!!!!

Happy Almost New Year!!
