You think moderate drinking is healthy? Think again! A recent study by researchers from the UK, published in BMC Public Health states a striking comparison between the two. It concludes that drinking one 750ml bottle of wine a week increases the risk of developing cancer over a lifetime and that is equal to smoking 10 cigarettes a week for women and 5 for men! For those who must, government guidelines on alcohol consumption advise men and women to drink no more than 14 units of alcohol, or 7 glasses of wine a week.
