LOL,
Breathing has also been linked to prostate cancer.  All this time I have been going to doctors and I coulda just been watching ABC, I've said this before and it would apply in another thread posted this week).  This charactar says so many "mights" and and other ambiguous comments you have to wonder if she just likes being on TV.  No study numbers are used at all, and no test criteria is listed.  This is not a study report, just a commentary.  For all that is listed in the article, alcohol could slow prostate cancer progression as well.  I am not suggesting this at all because I believe there is some substance there, but just based on the given information this article is not facts just comments.

Can anyone find the study?  Here's what I could find:

Harvard University:  http://ije.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/30/4/749

WebMD: http://www.webmd.com/prostate-cancer/news/20060522/alcohol-wont-worsen-prostate-symptoms

News-Med: http://www.news-medical.net/?id=20360

Red Wine reduces risk?: http://health.msn.com/health-topics/cancer/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100165329

At least these are studies...

Here's my opinion...and that ain't worth much:  The facts are that over consumption of alcohol is a risk of far more than prostate cancer.  One should not worry about prostate cancer so much if they drink too much, but heart failure, diebetes, hypertension, and many other cancers...have all been linked to excessive drinking...

Just my thought.

Wait a minute now. First I had a vasectomy, then a prostatectomy, now there's not a lot left of the 'male attributes' to count on, is there? My risk's should be declining, maybe? shocked

Well said, Tony.  I'm thinking of doing my own study that links prostate cancer to the automobile you drive...I'm figuring that will have the same statistical validity...

Well I heard that driving a Ford Fusion like I do is more likely to make my post surgery gleason a 3+4, and it came true
