    Drink free days campaign marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month by encouraging women to take more drink free days to reduce their breast cancer risk.



    Women encouraged to have more drink free days to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer

    This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and as part of their Drink free days campaign, Drinkaware and Public Health England (PHE) are encouraging women of all ages to cut down on how much they are drinking by taking more drink free days to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer and a range of other health conditions including liver and heart disease.

    Worryingly, every year over 55,100 people in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer[1] with alcohol causing 1 in 13 cases.[2] Alcohol increases the level of oestrogen in the bloodstream and long-term exposure to oestrogens increases the risk of developing breast cancer.[3],[4]

    The risks of developing a range of health problems, including breast cancer, increase the more you drink on a regular basis[5]. The UK Chief Medical Officers advise that to keep the health risks from alcohol to a low level it is safest for men and women not to drink more than 14 units a week and a good way to help achieve this is to have several drink free days each week.

    Commenting, Drinkaware Chief Executive Elaine Hindal said:

    “Alcohol causes one in 13 breast cancers which is why it’s so important women are aware of the risks from drinking. If you do regularly drink, having more drink free days a week is a good tactic for cutting down and reducing the risks.”

    Rosanna O’Connor, Director of Drugs, Alcohol, Tobacco and Justice at Public Health England said:

    “While the link with liver disease is well known, many people are not aware that alcohol can cause breast cancer as well as numerous other serious health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease and several other cancers.”

    Television presenter and journalist Kate Garraway and Drinkaware Medical Adviser Dr Sarah Jarvis are supporting the Drink Free Days campaign and want to help raise awareness among women about alcohol and its effects on their health.

    Commenting Dr Sarah Jarvis said:

    “Women of all ages need to be aware that alcohol increases their risk of developing breast cancer and that the more alcohol they drink, the greater the risk.

    “When it comes to breast cancer, there are some risks like a family history of the disease that women can’t control. But there are other risks, such as drinking too much or being overweight that they can.

    “For women who choose to drink alcohol, making lifestyle changes like cutting back on regular drinking and having a healthy diet will go a long way towards reducing the risks.

    “Cutting back on alcohol by taking more drink free days each week can improve women’s overall health and reduce their risk of developing breast cancer. The more you cut back, the greater the benefit, and everyone who chooses to drink alcohol should stay within the low risk drinking guidelines of 14 units a week.”

    “Breast cancer is affecting too many women and their families up and down the country.

    “We all need to be talking more openly and candidly about the risks from alcohol on women’s health, in particular breast cancer.

    “Tell your Mum, your daughter, your sister, your wife and your best friend about alcohol and breast cancer.

    “Tell them that the more alcohol they drink the greater the risk.

    “Tell them that a simple and easily achievable way of reducing the risk is by having more drink free days and the Drink Free Days campaign has a wide range of tools and resources available to help them do so – just search drink free days online.”

    How does drinking alcohol affect Men?

    Does it cause any medical problems, for them (apart from liver disease)?

    No Ausard2, what a misleading and moronic statement to make, it’s not allegedly at all. Nowhere in that article is the word allegedly used. This is proven scientific fact. They even cite the published articles used to back up their proven claims of a link between alcohol and breast cancer. It would be similar to someone saying tobacco allegedly causes lung cancer. It doesn’t allegedly cause it at all. It’s a proven fact that tobacco causes lung cancer.
    Are you also one of these morons who claims:
    The earth is flat?
    Chemtrails in the sky are poisoning us all?
    Vaccines cause autism?
    Global warming is a myth?
    We never landed on the moon?
    9/11 was the work of the US government?
    Wake up you dckhead, science is real and not some absurd conspiracy theory.

    I think donkey22 has answered that question.

    I beg to differ with you but science may be real but that reality is only acceptable to some people if it would not be detrimental to their financial prosperity and/or professional integrity.
    Start thinking on the lines of Pharmaceutical Companies whose share price would tumble and doctors whose reputation would be ruined if some magical natural product (cannabis?) came along which doctors had rubbished for decades and would render thousands of synthetic drugs unnecessary.
    Conspiracy is not just a theory in the medical industry, it is proven fact which keeps people ill, undoubtedly causes cancer and enriches doctors and Big Pharma alike.
    If you doubt what I am stating, read this book before you start criticising me. I have suffered personally from this problem:
    "Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare" by Peter Gotzsche.

    I don’t doubt for one minute the unethical and bordering on criminal activity of big Pharma at all. I completely sympathise with what your saying. Incidentally I think cannabis has huge potential medicinally and is undoubtedly remaining a class b drug in this country in part due to pressure from big Pharma worried about their profits. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Many illegal drugs have health benefits.
    What I was objecting to was people (Ausard2) who are ready to rubbish proven good scientific research because they don’t like its findings. And thanks for the reference you included with your post. It looks fascinating.

    Grow up people... Cannabis again the cure for everything it seems, yes in some cases an advantage but come on for every friggin thing.

    The article and many studies alike will always veer to the word "risk" and that's what all external/internal affects do...increase the risk.

    Cancer like diabetes, rheumatism, hyper tension, hypothyroidism etc etc etc are "Inflammatory diseases" and therefore affected by risk.

    And if it wasn't for Pharmaceutical companies, who are not perfect, there would be many more DEAD!!!!

    And 17 is the amount of times the word "Risk" is used in the report.

    Remember for 40 years supposed medical knowledge informed us that a High Diary Diet" was bad for the heart and circulatory system, it seems now a load of Bovine Testicles.

    Alcohol gives you limitless tolerance for ineptitude. Abstain from utilizing cigarettes, Alcohol, and medications as options in contrast to being a fascinating individual. At whatever point ladies battle with breast cancer and face preferable consideration over ever, Writing Service that is women's liberation. breast cancer is thought to utilize cholesterol to enable disease to move and attack more tissue.
