Many people like to have a glass of wine or other kinds of alcohol at Christmas. This can help you to relax.
Alcohol can interfere with the way some chemotherapy drugs work so best to check with your Medical Team if you are having treatment. Generally, having the odd glass of wine or beer is not going to affect you while on chemotherapy but with some drugs it is very important not to drink alcohol as they interact.
Remember! Just check with your doctor first to make sure it is all right or your Christmas cheer might make you very, very sick.
The Vision Eye Institute said the festive season and champagne went together like hot weather and blowflies, leading to a spike in the number of eye injuries from popping corks.
Not to scare you or deter you from the champagne, but people have suffered from detached retinas, straining of the eye and acute glaucoma.
It can even lead the permanent loss of vision and there have been cases where the eye itself has ruptured.
With the help of a few gassy bubbles, a bottle cork can fly out of your champagne at a speedy 80km/h. Careful.
