Washington: Drinking before and after diagnosis of breast cancer does not impact survival from the disease, a new study has found.In fact, a modest survival benefit was found in women who were moderate drinkers before and after diagnosis due to a reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, a major cause of mortality among breast cancer survivors."Our findings should be reassuring to women who have breast cancer because their past experience consuming alcohol will not impact their survival after diagnosis," said Polly Newcomb, Ph.D., a member of the Public Health Sciences Division and head of the Cancer Prevention Program at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, who led the study."This study also provides additional support for the beneficial effect of moderate alcohol consumption with respect to cardiovascular disease."
