White Wine Could Possibly Be Linked To Skin Cancer

White Wine

According to a new study published in the American Association for Cancer Research journal, those who drink alcohol every day are at a 14% greater risk of melanoma than those that don’t drink at all.

And if you don’t live somewhere where you’re regularly exposed to the sun, but drink at least 20 grams of alcohol per day, you’re at a 73% greater risk of developing skin cancer.

The real tragedy here is for white wine lovers – researchers compared melanoma risk among those that drank certain alcohols most frequently, and regular white wine drinkers had a 13% greater risk than those who preferred red wine, liquor or beer.

According to the study’s authors, compared to other types of booze, wine often has high levels of alcohol’s carcinogenic byproduct, which is linked to a risk of developing certain cancers.
