Survey: Women unaware of alcohol link to cancer

The survey showed 80 percent of women are unwire that alcohol consumption can increase their risk of developing the disease.

British public health officials say one glass of wine with 12 percent alcohol equals the recommended daily limit for most women.

Post-menopausal women taking hormone replacement therapy seem to be at the highest risk and they are urged to take a folate supplement if they drink alcohol.
