PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A very interesting report in the Journal of the American Medical Association finds moderate alcohol consumption increases risk of breast cancer in women.

According to researchers taking a look at the Nurses Health Study 105,000 women followed for over 28 years. Those who drink an average of three to six glasses of wine per week were measured and over an accumulative time period it was associated with a slight risk.

What do you do with this information? Other studies have shown moderate alcohol may affect heart disease in a beneficial way. According to the researchers, you should talk with your physician about your particular case. We will monitor the studies and see what new develops.
