Alcohol linked to increased risk of seven cancers

Alcohol linked to increased risk of seven cancers

Published in the research journal ‘Addiction’, a study by Jennie Connor, of the preventive and social medicine department at Otago University in New Zealand, shows that seven cancers have a stronger statistical link to alcohol consumption.

“The epidemiological evidence can support the judgment that alcohol causes cancer of the oropharynx, larynx, oesophagus, liver, colon, rectum and breast,” she stated, adding that there was some evidence for prostate, pancreatic and skin cancer too.

Connor used data from World Cancer Research studies. 

Suggestions from CRUK include having some alcohol-free days every week.
