Alcohol and breast cancer risk

A woman's risk of breast cancer usually increases when a family history of breast cancer. However, this risk can be reduced with lifestyle changes and behavior, particularly in terms of alcohol consumption.
A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows, teenage girls with a family history of breast cancer have a higher risk of suffering from cancers such as increased consumption of alcohol.
Researchers claim, this is the first finding that the relationship between alcohol consumption in adolescents with risk of breast cancer. The reason for this mostly just research linking alcohol to breast cancer risk in women age 50s, 40s, 60s and the risk of invasive breast cancer, instead of the initial risk that can lead to invasive breast cancer.
Previous research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, in which Colditz also act as researchers discovered, there has been a moderate increase in breast cancer risk by consuming 3-6 glasses of alcohol per week per adult women, regardless of whether he has a family history of breast cancer .
In his research Colidtz also find interesting facts, which are not found to increase the risk of benign breast lesions in young women (with no history of breast cancer) related to alcohol consumption. However, they seem obvious risk with increasing body mass index in childhood, waist circumference in adolescence and height.
The findings indicate, there are differences in risk factors between women with a history of breast cancer and those who did not.
Height associated with breast cancer risk. And some data showing explosive growth led to a higher risk of developing cancer later in life. Obviously, it's not something we can control. But if we can understand what is going on hormones and processes in the body, and the role of physical activity and diet, we may be able to modify some of the accumulated risk of early breast cancer.

Korean Researchers Develop Healthy Alcohol

Alcohol presents a number of harmful side effects for who drinking. Ranging from organ damage, loss of coordination, and disorders that can lead to other dangerous things. However, for some drinkers of alcohol, drunk sensation is very tempting.

For that, Kwang-il Kwon, a Korean doctor and Hye Gwang Jeong, researchers from Chungnam National University in South Korea to develop a safe alcohol.

Unlike other research groups that focus on the manufacture of alcoholic substitute for alcohol, the two Korean scientists are researching oxygenated alcohol alcohol which is a type popular in Korea.

Oxygenated alcohol has a similar appearance with Carbonated alcohol such as beer and other alcoholic beverages. However, the main gas from the alcohol species is diatomic oxygen, not carbon dioxide.

To test, the researchers gave each of 19.5 percent and 19.5 percent alcohol oxygenated uncarbonated drink alcohol at doses of 240 and 360 milliliters of a drunk respondents.

Interestingly, those who drank alcohol oxygenated aware of between 20 to 30 minutes faster than those who drink regular alcohol. More and more oxygen is mixed in alcohol, the sooner drinkers aware of the drunk.

For example, respondents who drank 360 milliliters of oxygenated alcohol with the oxygen content of 20 ppm realized 23.3 minutes earlier than usual to those who drank alcohol in the same dose a lot. Once oxygen was increased to 25 ppm, they realized 27 minutes faster.

Tests showed that the next morning, they are rarely oxygenated drinking experience discomfort than those who drank alcohol conventional. Those who experience a hangover was not as severe as those who drink regular alcohol.

From the research revealed that the oxygenation minimize negative effects on the body. The rapid re-aware of indicate that the oxygenated drinking alcohol is processed more quickly, which means reducing the burden on the liver and other organs. Diminishing the effects of a hangover in the morning also indicate that blood flow to the brain better lower the risk of brain damage.

"Beverage alcohol reduces the oxygen-rich plasma concentrations of alcohol beverage alcohol more quickly than usual. This allows the drinker more quickly aware of the drunk, "Kwon said, as quoted by DailyTech, 14 November 2010. "In addition, this type of alcohol also reduces the side effects without reducing the sensation of drinking alcohol," he said.

Although managed to make alcohol more "healthy" for peminumnya, but has not been clarified whether these oxygenated alcohols have the same taste on the tongue and in the mouth than regular alcohol. If a successful match, the study barhasil make a major breakthrough towards drink in the movie Star Trek called "synthehol" aka synthetic alcohol.
