WHITE WINE LINKED TO MELANOMA RISK
According to a new study by researchers at Brown University, alcohol in general and white wine in particular is associated with higher melanoma risks.
Another surprise came when the researchers looked at melanoma rates on different body parts. People who drank 20 grams or more of alcohol per day (a little less than two drinks) were only 2% more likely than non-drinkers to be diagnosed with melanomas of the head, neck, arms, or legs. But they were 73% more likely to be diagnosed with melanomas of the trunk — a body part often covered by clothing, CNN reports.
