Breast Cancer Risk Higher with Moderate Drinking

A study of more than 100,000 women for almost 30 years has shown that those who drink 3-6 alcoholic drinks per week had a 15% higher risk of invasive breast cancer compared to non-drinkers. That risk increased to 50% in women who averaged more than 30 drinks per week. The type of alcohol made no difference. This study is consistent with earlier studies.
