File Description [top]

Canadian Business and Current Affairs Fulltext (CBCA Fulltext) provides coverage of a wide range of company, product, and industry information appearing in over 500 Canadian popular magazines and business periodicals, as well as eight daily newspapers. The file provides the full text for articles from over 100 of the periodicals and news sources covered in the bibliographic database, starting from 1993 to the present, and indexing to more than 5 million articles from 1982 to present.

The early database consisted of 3 subfiles: 1) Canadian Business Index (1982-1992); 2) Canadian News Index (1982-1992); and 3) Canadian Magazine Index (1985-1992). Records currently in the file are from the Canadian Index (1993 to date).

    Text: 
    Did you hear about the study by Dr. Arthur Klatsky of the Kaiser Permanente 
    Research Group in California, the one that found that a single drink per 
    day increased a woman's risk of breast cancer? 
     
    At first blush, this fall study sounded as scary as last year's study from 
    the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, the one that reported 
    that a glass or two of red wine daily helped lower the risk of heart 
    attack-but only for men. 
     
    What kind of sexist biology-is-destiny fates had determined that men could 
    drink a glass or two of wine a day and see their health improve, yet women 
    who do  the same "were risking theirs? Is it time for women to give up the 
    grape? 
     
    I took a sober second look at the Klatsky study and found a few interesting 
    things. First, the  media focussed almost exclusively on the finding that 
    women who drank one to two drinks per day had a 10 percent higher risk of 
    breast cancer compared to those who drank less than one drink per day. And 
    yet, any epidemiologist worth  her  salt will tell you that a 10 percent 
    increase isn't exactly stop-the-presses news. The important news in 
    Klatsky's study was actually underreported: namely, that heavy drinkers, 
    those consuming three or more drinks per day, had a breast cancer rate 30 
    percent higher than those who drank less than a one drink per day. 
     
    "A 30 percent increased risk is not trivial," Klatsky pointed out. "It 
    provides more evidence for why heavy drinkers should quit or cut down." 
     
    He is right. Among the 70,033 multi-ethnic women whose health records 
    Klatsky examined between 1977 and 1985, four percent had been diagnosed 
    with breast cancer by 2004. Heavy drinkers were twice as likely to have had 
    the diagnosis. A woman's lifetime risk of having breast cancer is about one 
    in nine; for heavy drinkers, the risk could be nearly one in six. Moreover, 
    heavy  drinkers  are  already at an elevated risk of diabetes, osteoporosis 
    and  many types of cancer. If you're drinking three or more drinks per day, 
    breast cancer is one more reason to cut back. 
     
    At the same time, we need to put a 10 percent increased risk of breast 
    cancer in perspective. Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of 
    death for Canadian  women. In 1996, 39,924 Canadian women died of 
    cardiovascular disease, while 5,300 women died from breast cancer. Women 
    are eight times as likely to die from heart disease as from breast cancer.
