Thanks, Kate, for another wonderful article. That's good information on the carcinogens - I lost my mom to Colon Cancer, she was 61... She was also a raging alcoholic until her early 40s when she turned her life around. I know where the alcoholism came from and now I get a coloscopy every 5 years!

And bringing up the "benefits" of one or two drinks a day??? We all latched on to that as our only sliver of hope to deceive ourselves. Now the CDC is considering changing the governments recommendation of alcohol consumption to two drinks a WEEK!

Well, that's my 2 cents...

Thanks again, Kate, for a great read!

Thank you, Stuart for your wonderful feedback and support!

It makes me so mad how big alcohol have known all this time and the powers that be have really neglected to shove this facts down our throats. Even more bewildering in a country like the UK where the government pays for people’s healthcare.

I’m so sorry about your mum. That’s heartbreaking. Thank you sharing that with us. So happy to hear that managed to turn her life around and get sober!

My mum also had colon cancer stage 4, a big drinker (but not to the level I was). Incredibly she survived. But won’t give up the booze.

I didn’t realise the CDC was considering changing the recommendation- that’s very positive news!
