Ultimate Guide to Alcohol & Cancer
Ultimate Guide To Alcohol & Cancer
Over the last decade, there has been a proliferation in research focusing on the link between alcohol and cancer. The conclusion of this research is that alcohol consumption causes cancer. This includes cancer of larynx, cancer of the pancreas, cancer of the anus and cancer of the female breast amongst other varieties of cancer.
Scientists believe cancer causes at least 5000 different types of cancer. Drinking as little as 20ml of alcohol a day significantly increases the risk of you developing cancer. This dispels the myth that you must be a heavy drinker in order to increase the risks of developing cancer. However, although small amounts of alcohol can cause cancer, the more alcohol you drink, the greater the risk of developing cancer will be.
The idea that alcohol causes health benefits is thus a myth. Alcohol and its by-products are toxic and carcinogenic so you should really try to avoid alcohol completely or at least reduce the amount of alcohol you consume.
