Avoid This: Overdoing the Booze
A drink a day may keep the doctor away by reducing your risk of heart disease and stroke, but having more than a five-ounce glass of wine, 12 ounces of beer, or 1.5 ounces of hard liquor can do more harm than good. Excessive alcohol consumption increases the risk of developing various cancers, including breast cancer (women who have two or more drinks a day are one and a half times more likely to be diagnosed with the disease).
