“What are the Odds?”

Guess which one is more likely.

Death by cow?

Nope! Your odds of getting murdered by a cow are only 1 in 164 million. Mooove along.

or

FlipCardIcons_vendingmachine-02

A fatal encounter with a vending machine?

Yep! You have a 1 in 112 million chance of dying in a vending machine-related accident — probably worth the risk for that bag of chips, though.

Getting attacked by a bear?

Yep! You have a 1 in 2.1 million chance that your encounter with a bear will be… unbearable.

or

FlipCardIcons_murderhornet-09

Getting stung to death by murder hornets?

or

Getting breast cancer?

Yes. 1 out of every 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Alcohol increases your risk.

Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. About 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Alcohol increases that risk.

What does it mean to you?

Between 4-10% of breast cancer cases each year are thought to be due to alcohol use (we got this estimate from this paper). We used the middle of that range—7%—and multiplied it by 276,480, the estimated number of new breast cancer cases in 2020 (we got this estimate here). That equals 19,354.
