Beer Drinkers beware the Canadiens

interesting, and i agree that the link may simply be people who drink and get lung cancer are also smokers. I also have heard people say they smoke MORE when they are drinking too. So the whole "drinking" equation in and of itself may not even apply really..? hmmm...

Interesting.

Thanks

Interesting tidbit Randy. They say they factored out the smoking issue ..... (all depends on the actual quality of the study design).

Found it useful to know that they found the opposite effect with wine. Would love to know if they made any distinction on what kind of wine (doesn't sound like it though). Red wine is supposed to be loaded with reservitrol (sp?) -- reservitrol is supposed to be the most potent antioxidant there is (so I've heard of late) and that could explain why they got the opposite effect.

I have been meaning to look into the reservitrol issue further (like what else is high in it and just plain learn more about it), just haven't had time yet.

Looks like it's OK to enjoy your red wine (green tea and hot cocoa too). Check these out:

Am still interested in the reservetrol issue as I have time to research it further. Reservetrol is a known cancer-fighting agent, but so far I haven't been able to come up with anything that specifically talks about LC effects.
