I am NOT a doctor…and Dr. Isaac Yankem is not a licensed dentist.

I’m always surfing the world-wide-web, looking for different ways to prevent cancer. It’s hard not to get scared, but at the same time you don’t want to become a hypochondriac or anything. It is good however, to stay informed and do what you can to stay ahead in the fight against cancer.

Now, as I have pointed out way back when, I love kicking back with family and friends, sharing stories, singing karaoke and drinking beers. I was scoping the Reader’s Digest site when I came across the nugget of awesomeness:

“Have a beer tonight. Beer protects against the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, known to cause ulcers and possibly linked to stomach cancer. But don’t overdo it. Drinking more than one or two alcoholic drinks a day may increase your risk of mouth, throat, esophageal, liver, and breast cancer.”

This can be a delicious double-edged sword as it can help fight cancer but also put you more at risk.

So here’s my prescription: enjoy a pint or two through the week, but not a keg or two…
