Well, here's an interesting tidbit!

From Coping Magazine:

"Drinking wine while undergoing radiation treatment for breast carcinoma may reduce the incidence of skin toxicity in women with breast cancer, according to a study in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology*Biology*Physics. Researchers found that women consuming wine had a lower incidence of Grade 2 or higher acute toxicity than those who did not consume alcohol.
Those who drank one glass of wine per day had a 13.6 percent incidence of skin toxicity versus a 38.4 percent incidence in women who did not drink wine."

I say, "Salute"!!!!
