You’re NOT Olivia Pope…
Good morning and happy Friday!
I like a good glass of wine as much as the next person, but we have to seek some truth about what our alcohol intake really means.
I used to keep a photos of body inspiration on my telephone. I don’t do that anymore unless they are photos of my own body. It’s unhealthy to aspire to “have her legs” or his arms.
What’s worse, is I used to keep a photo of a sculpture of spider-man for body comparison. That’s worse because it’s not even on the human spectrum, much less my own genetic spectrum.
Comparing myself to a fictional character was super unhealthy and unattainable.
Enter Olivia Pope, the fictional star of the hit television show “Scandal.” Chances are you, or someone in your family watches it.
Olivia fixes the problems of the world’s power structure and closes her days in bottles of wine. But Olivia is fictional and you are a real person.
Here’s what ladies need to know about those glasses of red.
It’s true that moderate alcohol consumption has been linked to lower risk of cardiovascular disease, but there’s more you NEED to know.
Alcohol, even one drink a day, also appears to increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer by 30%, possibly by changing the way the body metabolizes estrogen.
Consider the situation carefully.
