What does this alcohol calculator do?
Our breast cancer alcohol risk analyzer establishes your increased risk of breast cancer over the remainder of your lifetime due to the type and amount of alcohol you consume daily or weekly. The calculator considers additional variables, such as a decrease in lifetime risk for women who consume Methylfolate on a daily basis.
Who should use this calculator?
Any person between the age of 20 and 80 who consumes alcohol on at least a weekly basis and would like to establish their increased risk due to their regular alcohol intake. While occurrence of breast cancer in men is rare, it does happen and increased alcohol consumption increases risk for men just as women.
Are the results based on scientific data?
Our breast cancer alcohol risk calculator is based on various validated scientific studies and research. These studies have assessed increased breast cancer risk due to certain levels of alcohol consumption, the effects of certain types of alcohol that may have a positive effect on breast cancer risk (such as red wine), as well as the risk reduction experienced by drinking women who consume certain levels of methylfolate daily. We combined the data from these studies into a robust algorithm to provide you with an easy-to-understand lifetime risk percentage based on your personal alcohol preferences.
