Study: Alcohol consumption may increase breast cancer risk

According to a study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, as few as three to six glasses of wine a week increased the chance for women to develop breast cancer.

The research found that the risk of cancer rose with the amount of alcohol consumed, with the best measure of risk being a woman's cumulative lifetime alcohol consumption.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, chief medical correspondent, joins American Morning today to explain the study and what it means for women's health.
