Schmutz: White Wine Invites Melanoma, and Coffee Discourages It?

Drinking alcohol — specifically, drinking white wine — may increase your change of getting melanoma, but drinking coffee may decrease your chance. That’s what this new study suggests.

Here is the study: “Mélanome: alcool ou café, il faut choisir [Alcohol or coffee to help keep melanoma at bay],” Jean-Luc Schmutz, Annales de Dermatologie et de Vénéréologie, 2017. The author is at Hôpital de Brabois, Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy, France.

    Please tell me more about drinking coffee and white wine in preventing the skin cancer ~ Melanoma. I grewup without the benefits of sunblock in the 1950’s-60’s to help my white skin and with freckles with hazel eyes. I am half-Norwegian and I have always burned badly in the sun, never tanning. My freckles would get darker and more plentiful after the painful redness would finally go away and my skin would flake like I was shedding.
