Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. It affects almost one in 11 women in the United States. It is more common in post-menopausal women.
The correctible causes of breast cancer include use of hormones like estrogen, lack of exercise, obesity and use of alcohol. Current research suggests that having more than one to two alcoholic drinks, including beer, wine and spirits, per day raises the risk of breast cancer, as well as the risk of having the cancer come back after treatment.
