Top 10 alcohol health claims

10. Red wine lowers risk of lung cancer

Men who drink a couple of glasses or red wine per day have a lower risk of lung cancer.

Measuring the effect of beer, red wine, white wine and liquor consumption on the risk of lung cancer, there was on average a 2% lower lung cancer risk associated with each glass of red wine consumed per month.

Researchers looked at data from more than 84,000 men aged 45 to 69 that was collected through the California Men’s Health Study between 2000 and 2003.

They found 210 cases of lung cancer for the report in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.

‘An antioxidant component in red wine may be protective of lung cancer, particularly among smokers,’ said Dr Chun Chao, from Kaiser Permanente Department of Research and Evaluation in Pasadena, California.

    So if you drink 50 glasses of red wine per month, that’s 12 per week, or 2 per day, with a day off, you will be 100% free of lung cancer. But it says nothing about smoking with those glasses of wine. A miracle cure!

  2. Derek says:

    ‘The beneficial mental effects of alcohol were found when a person drinks up to about 30 drinks per week, and increased with consumption.’ So the garbage that pours forth after a night on the booze isn’t just someone being totally pissed, they are being far to clever for us to understand. No, don’t think so, they are just pissed and being stupid.

    ‘Lose weight with a glass of wine’…and add kilos with litres of beer!
