Pause for Prevention: Have a Glass of Red and Make a Toast to Your Girls!
Wednesday February 1, 2012

Vivekan, Bodhisattva Yoga’s founder/co-director, shared this gem with us regarding red wine and breast health!

Alcohol is known to increase estrogen levels fostering the growth of breast cancer cells. However, recent research suggests that moderate red wine drinking can actually ward off this leading form of women’s cancer. Compounds in the red grapes’ skin and seeds lowered estrogen levels, while increasing testosterone levels in premenopausal women. So, go ahead and enjoy that red.


It might be a bit of a burden *wink wink*, but we might just have to take Vivekan’s advice to heart and enjoy a glass here and there.

While you’re sipping on your red, be sure to check out more weekly bits from Vivekan at Bodhisattva Yoga.
