There was a short article in the paper in UK yesterday on 'the 1st professor of urinarygynaecology ever appointed in the UK'. She was interviewed and said 'champagne, white wine, and caffeine irritate the bladder'. I dont know if she knows anything about BC but if she's right that could explain why I have BC when I never smoked and not in a carciogenic industry etc. I have no intention of giving up the above anyway but amazingly in all I have read i never saw any suggestion that alcohol is related to BC. Anyone out there got any views? meanwhile: Cheers!
