New study on red wine consumption raises cancer concerns

EL PASO, Texas -- Many studies have shown that moderate red wine drinking can lower your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and weight gain.

But according to a recent study, consuming one bottle of red wine a week could increase your risk of cancer, just as it would if a man smoked ten cigarettes a week, or a woman smoked five cigarettes a week.

Dr. Juan Taveras, a cardiologist with Las Palmas Medical Center, discussed the new study on ABC-7 at Four with Stephanie Valle.
