  • Alcohol Linked to Several Types of Cancer — ASCO

According to evidence gathered by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), alcohol consumption is linked with an increased risk of cancer and can negatively impact cancer treatment.

It's estimated that, worldwide, about 5 percent of new cancers and 6 percent of cancer deaths each year are directly attributable to alcohol consumption, the ASCO statement said.

The studies also found heavy drinkers have higher risks of mouth, throat, voice box and liver cancer.

Alcohol is not the only important factor to consider when trying to reduce your cancer risk - your genes, exercise regimen, and exposure to pollutants can play a role, too.

They said women who drink - even lightly - have an increased chance of breast and esophageal cancer.

The American Society of Clinical Oncology has raised the red flag, warning that the public is lacking education and understanding of the serious health risks of light to moderate drinking.

Heavier drinking is linked with greater risks, the statement said.

People living with cancer remain at risk for other cancer and hence should not drink even small or moderate amounts of alcohol.

Support efforts to eliminate the use of "pinkwashing" to market alcoholic beverages.

"If you don't drink, there's no reason to start".

"Therefore, limiting alcohol intake is a means to prevent cancer", she added. For that report, scientists from the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund looked at 119 studies from around the globe and incorporated data from roughly 12 million women as well as some 260,000 cases of breast cancer.

For people who choose to drink alcohol, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that men consume no more than two drinks per day and women consume no more than one drink per day to reduce the risk of alcohol-related harms, including cancer. "Don't start.' This is a little more subtle". Further researchers propounded in 2012 that almost 5.5 percent all novel cancer contingency and 5.8 percent of all cancer related demise worldwide could be assigned to consuming alcohol. She says this "subtle" take on the issue is somewhat less cautionary than the warnings about smoking.

Ashton said alcohol consumption has been shown to be a causative factor in a wide range of cancers, including cancer of the head and neck, esophagus, breast and colon.
