Beer, wine and lung cancer

Beer may increase your risk of lung cancer—but wine may lower it. In recent studies, after discounting smoking, drinking up to six beers per week increased the risk of lung cancer by 20%, and by 50% for seven or more beers consumed in the same period. Beer appears especially harmful to men who did not eat fruit and vegetables regularly.
However, men who drank wine saw their lung cancer risk drop by 40%, and women by 70%.
Researcher say above data could be explained by the different components that go into beer and wine or different lifestyles of beer and wine drinkers.
