Beer and Prostate Cancer

Posted by Tricia Dunn - email

(WFLX) - Beer drinkers beware! Having that drink could put you more at risk for highly aggressive prostate cancer.

A new study shows those who drink more heavily were more than twice as likely to develop what's called high-grade prostate cancer.

The study's main goal was to test the effectiveness of a drug prescribed to prevent prostate cancer. Heavy drinking not only reduced the drug's effectiveness, but also increased the risk of aggressive cancer.
