Want to avoid bladder cancer? Get bladdered on beer or wine.

Such welcome news for boozers ... according to a meta-analysis of alcohol intake and risk of bladder cancer conducted by the Department of Urology at the First Affiliated Hospital (School of Medicine) at Zhejiang University in China...

"The overall current literature on alcohol consumption and the risk of bladder cancer suggested no association, while the consumption of beer and wine was associated with reduced risk of bladder cancer," says the abstract.

"Further efforts should be made to confirm these findings and clarify the underlying biological mechanisms," the abstract concludes.

Drinking wine didn't stop me getting bladder cancer and now I no longer have a bladder, I suppose this information is irrelevant. But I'm going to continue drinking wine just in case...
