Does Alcohol cause cancer? A Candid Conversation
Exploring the Impact of Alcohol on Our Well-being
Hello, I’m Dr. Sunny Dhesi, and welcome to another edition of the Vysana Life Newsletter. Today, I’m delving into a topic that’s often shrouded in confusion and controversy: the relationship between alcohol and cancer. As we navigate the complexities of health and lifestyle choices, it’s crucial to understand the implications of our decisions, especially concerning alcohol consumption.
The Stark Reality: Alcohol as a Carcinogen
Unveiling the Truth Behind Alcohol and Cancer Risks
The World Health Organisation categorises alcohol as a carcinogen, placing it in the same category as tobacco and asbestos. This classification is not taken lightly and is based on extensive research and evidence. Despite the common belief that moderate drinking might be harmless or even beneficial, recent studies suggest otherwise. The Lancet, a reputable medical journal, has highlighted alcohol’s toxic and addictive nature, reinforcing the need for caution and moderation.
Heart Health and Alcohol: A Misconception?
Debunking Myths Around Alcohol and Cardiovascular Benefits
One of the most prevalent myths about alcohol is its supposed benefits for heart health. However, research from the University of Oxford indicates that even light drinking can increase the risk of hypertension and coronary artery disease. The supposed heart-healthy effects of a glass of red wine might be more attributable to the overall lifestyle of moderate drinkers rather than the alcohol itself.
Navigating Health During Perimenopause
Alcohol’s Impact on Women’s Health During Critical Life Stages
For women, particularly during perimenopause, the health implications of alcohol consumption become even more significant. While many worry about the risks associated with Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), the dangers of alcohol are often overlooked. It’s essential to weigh these risks and make informed decisions about our health and well-being.
A Holistic Approach to Health and Wellness

At Vysana, our mission goes beyond treating symptoms; we aim to educate and empower our patients to make informed choices about their health. We advocate for a holistic approach, considering all aspects of well-being, including the impact of lifestyle choices like alcohol consumption.
Embracing Technology for Enhanced Healthcare
Innovating with AI for Personalised Skin Analysis
In our continuous pursuit of innovation, we’ve embraced artificial intelligence to revolutionise skin care analysis. Our new AI-powered tool allows for detailed skin assessments, providing personalised recommendations for skincare and treatments. This technology enables us to extend our care beyond the clinic, offering tailored solutions right in the comfort of your home.
Understanding Your Skin: A Deep Dive into Analysis
Leveraging AI for Comprehensive Skin Care Solutions
Our skin analysis tool is more than just a technological marvel; it’s a gateway to understanding your unique skin needs. By analysing various skin parameters, we can identify areas of concern, such as dark circles, firmness, and hydration levels. This analysis forms the foundation for our skincare recommendations, ensuring that each solution is tailored to your specific needs.
In Conclusion: Education, Moderation, and Mindfulness
