Raise your glasses (at least there is something we can be happy about): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30247171

Neither light to moderate (<2 drinks/day; SRR=0.93, 95% CI: 0.80-1.08, I=69.2%) nor heavy (≥2 drinks/day; SRR=1.00, 95% CI: 0.86-1.16, I=39.9%) consumption of wine was associated statistically with CRC risk. This meta-analysis suggests that any wine consumption was not associated with the risk of CRC. Null associations were shown in men and women for colon and rectal cancer.

 


Interesting summary article on alternative approaches: https://www.liebertpub.com/doi/full/10.1089/acm.2018.0125

My husband asked my oncologist if wine or beer could hurt me and she said nope (during treatment), just not to excess.  Of course during treatment you don't want any but when you felt good and feel you could go out and think you are semi-normal it was a good thing to have.  Made me feel a little normal again.
