What is that in wine that increases cancer risk?
I’m not sure if there’s anything specific in wine, but alcohol itself is a toxin to your body and brain. It’s linked to a few types of cancers, more specifically:
- Mouth and throat.
- Voice box (larynx).
- Colon and rectum.
- Breast (in women).
One reason is that it’s a toxin. The other reason could be the increase in blood sugar and insulin levels, especially with wine.
Is it good for your heart, because of better blood flow… but there are lots of other things that are better for your heart and improve blood flow and don’t have the negative side-effects of alcohol.
Even simple vitamins and herbs.
The goal is to improve blood sugar and blood flow levels, especially if you’re going to consume any form of alcohol.
