alcohol-beerA new study from Boston University finds that alcohol is responsible for four percent of all cancer deaths.

Researchers say people are not aware of this link, and that doctors are not emphasizing the risks.

Reducing alcohol, they say, cuts down that risk.

The scientists say about 20,000 people in the United States die each year from cancer related to alcohol consumption.

The study found that for women, alcohol was most  commonly linked to breast cancer.

For men, cancers of the mouth, throat and esophagus were associated with alcohol.

    California CARB fuel was close to zero ethanol in our fuel in 1992..

    1992 fuel price about $1.40 per gallon.

    Ethanol push from fed EPA and friends pushed ethanol to 5.6% and we paid more for our fuel.

    Fed EPA and Big oil refiners pushed the oxygenate to 10% and we paid more.

    Now BP GMO fuel is pushing for over $1.00 in corporate welfare with 15% of the fuel market while cutting back Oil and refining

    Will BP GMO fuel patents generate credit trade income from the Big oil industry with the Queen Mother help.

    The Queen banker friends may want a share.

    So. how big does California ethanol bill need to be to qualify for the EPA waiver?

    Can Mary Nichols and Governor Brown support a BP GMO fuel waiver? Motorcycle, Classic car, Lawn tool engines, Boat, & the beef just might like a choice of fuel ethanol opinion, a waiver. Can Governor Brown use the 10th amendment to support California Waiver.
