Top Cancer Doctors In The US Ask Citizens To Reduce Alcohol Consumption

Alcohol causes seven cancers, doctors warn in new report

In fact, alcohol is not the only reason of a risk of getting cancer but many other factors like diet, exercise and pollutants in the air come into play.

Drinking - even small or moderate amounts - was especially closely associated with increased risks for esophogeal, mouth, liver, colorectal and breast cancers, and is responsible for more than five percent of cancers and cancer deaths worldwide.

The intake of alcohol, even with modesty may put you in harm's way: new review found that alcohol increases the risk of developing certain cancers, according to American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).

As of 2013, about 73 percent of Americans reported consuming alcohol, and almost 13 percent described their consumption habits as binge drinking, according to a survey published in JAMA Psychiatry in August.

"If alcoholic drinks are consumed, limit consumption to two drinks a day for men and one drink a day for women".

This is the first time the organization has taken a stance on alcohol and cancer, but it is not the first time that research has found strong links between the two.

The report said that there is also now enough evidence to suggest that alcohol is a probably cause of pancreatic, stomach and other cancers.

Alcoholic beverages is a risk factor for the development of some cancers.

Alcohol does not affect each part of the body in the same carcinogenic way, as Dr LoConte explained.

The review of previous studies on the connection between alcohol consumption and cancer, published on Tuesday in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, revealed that approximately 3.5% of all cancers death cases in the USA could be linked to alcohol intake.

Overall, the authors say that alcohol "is causally associated with oropharyngeal and larynx cancer, esophageal cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, breast cancer, and colon cancer".

"People don't usually suspect that when they drink beer, wine or liquor, this increases the risk of cancer, noted ASCO President Bruce Johnson".

If an individual quits consuming alcohol for a long time - approximately 20 years or more -, be that as it may, their risk of developing cancer returns to that of non-drinkers, as indicated by scientists' analysis.

"We're not saying no one should ever drink at all - we're just saying if you do drink, even trying to keep it down to less than one drink a day would be a smart choice", Alice Bender, a registered dietitian who is the head of nutrition programs for the AICR, told Business Insider in May. "And if You don't drink, don't start", he added.
