Yikes!

I hate being the bearer of bad news. I'd much rather be happy-fun-healthy Ms. Functional. But I'm afraid I've got to play bad cop today.

A recent study funded by the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism found that between 3-4% of all cancer deaths are attributed to alcohol consumption.

Gulp.

Even moderate drinkers weren't necessarily safe. 30% of all alcohol-related cancer deaths involved people who consumed less than one and a half drinks a day.

The study was conducted by the Boston University Medical Center and researchers there say that the public should be aware that reducing alcohol intake is actually a form of cancer prevention.

So I'm drinking a glass of water right now. :)  

For masochists, here's more info about the study.

Have a fun weekend anyway! Remember, less is more!
