How alcohol increases cancer risk
Alcoholic drinks contain ethanol, which irritates your body’s cells. Over a prolonged period of time (even with moderate amounts), this cell irritation can lead to cancer. Alcohol can damage the lining of the mouth and throat causing cancer in these parts of the body. Alcohol can also impact the levels of hormones that are linked to breast cancer. And when alcohol is digested it can break down into compounds that cause bowel cancer. Your risk of getting cancer increases with every alcoholic drink you consume.

Cancer Council recommendations
If you drink, Cancer Council recommends no more than 2 standard drinks a day. And it’s important to remember that drinks served at home, restaurants and bars are usually more than a standard drink. Try replacing alcohol with water on occasion, and picking up some alcohol-free days each week.

Cutting down on alcohol will reduce your cancer risk.

Examples of 1 standard drink:
1 x 375 mL bottle of mid strength beer = 1 standard drink

100 mL of wine (one small glass of wine) = 1 standard drink

30 mL of spirits (one measure of spirits) = 1 standard drink

F**k me dead!!! :rolleyes:

OK..

Requires a medical diagnosis
During a seizure, a person experiences abnormal behaviour, symptoms and sensations, sometimes including loss of consciousness. There are few symptoms between seizures.
People may experience:
Whole body: fainting or fatigue
Muscular: rhythmic muscle contractions or muscle spasms
Sensory: aura or pins and needles
Also common: seizures, amnesia, anxiety, depression, headache, sleepiness, staring spells, or temporary paralysis after a seizure

Usually self-diagnosable
Aphasia affects a person's ability to express and understand written and spoken language.
People may experience:
Behavioural: social isolation or persistent repetition of words or actions
Speech: difficulty speaking or jumbled speech
Also common: difficulty building and drawing things or loss of the ability to write

Apraxia is a motor disorder caused by damage to the brain (specifically the posterior parietal cortex) in which the individual has difficulty with the motor planning to perform tasks or movements when asked, provided that the request or command is understood and he/she is willing to perform the task.

Requires a medical diagnosis
Symptoms can vary based on the location of the haemorrhage in the brain, but may include numbness or weakness in part of the face, difficulty speaking or difficulty walking.
People may experience:
Muscular: weakness of one side of the body or paralysis of one side of the body
Also common: bleeding, decreased level of consciousness, altered level of consciousness, difficulty speaking, ekg abnormalities, fainting, headache, seizures, or sensitivity to light

Fruit, vegetables and cancer
Did you know that a fibre-rich diet including 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables a day can help prevent 1 in 6 bowel cancer cases? Or that eating the recommended servings of fruit and vegetables helps reduce your risk of oesophageal, lung and some mouth and throat cancers?

Did you know if you’ve had cancer, maintaining a healthy diet can help prevent it from coming back?

  • How a lack of fruit and vegetables increases cancer risk
    Fruit and vegetables are rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals which, in combination, help to reduce the risk of certain cancers. Because fruit and vegetables are rich in nutrients and low in kilojoules, they help maintain a healthy body weight, adding further protection against cancer. Excess fat around the stomach and being obese are well-documented risk factors for some cancers of the stomach, bowel, breast (post-menopause), oesophagus, liver, kidney, gallbladder, pancreas, endometrium, ovary and prostate (advanced).

    To find out your cancer risk, take the Cancer Risk Quiz.

  • Cancer Council recommendations
    Cancer Council recommends eating 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables every day to reduce your cancer risk.

    Find out more about fruit, vegetables and cancer prevention here.

    Examples of 1 serve:
    • 1 medium apple = 1 serve
    • 2 apricots = 1 serve
    • 1 cup of diced fruit = 1 serve
    • ½ cup cooked vegetables = 1 serve
    • ½ medium potato = 1 serve
    • 1 cup of salad = 1 serve

Mate I train like a greyhound and most of the time, I eat correctly. The first meal in early morning (Oats, milk..strawberries or blueberries) and a coffee. sometimes 30 mins later - 2 eggs (poached on bread or broccoli - Micro for 30 secs with little bit of water.

Unfortunately in 6 months they'll say the opposite.

I think most things - IN MODERATION - are OK. The occasional booze up is ok too.

Just about everything is bad to your health if not taken in moderation.
Even something as vital as oxygen can have a deleterious effect if to much pure o2 is taken.

The problem is what might be good or bad for you today can be the reverse after "more "studies" tomorrow except tobacco which is the worst thing imported from the "new" world.
