ALCOHOL AND BREAST CANCER
The pioneering Framingham study, first begun in the 1940's, carefully
tracks individuals over time to study risk factors in various diseases
and in longevity. Because of its size and the very careful methodology
consistently used, its findings command respect in the medical research
community. New data from the ongoing Framingham study indicate that
alcohol consumption does NOT increase the risk of breast cancer.
