in #CASE you missed it… Drinking a bottle of wine is like smoking 10 cigarettes

In smoking terms, the risks associated with drinking one bottle of wine equals out to smoking half a pack of cigarettes a week for women. The reason women's risk is higher is because of the increased risk of breast cancer, researchers note. To look at it another way, for every 1000 men and 1000 women that drink that amount of wine a week, 10 men and 14 women would develop cancer as a result.

Researchers point out that this is not meant to detract from the known dangers of smoking.

"Our findings are not meant to detract from the substantive cancer risks associated with smoking which remains the single largest preventable cause of cancer worldwide, and for which even very low levels of exposure are associated with an increased risk of cancer."
