Alcohol Use Implicated in 7 Cancers

People interested in lowering their risks for certain forms of cancer may want to think twice about cracking open their next beer or partaking in another mixed adult beverage. A new analysis has found that strong evidence exists to link alcohol consumption to seven forms of cancer. Evidence, researchers say, also indicates that over consumption of spirited beverages likely is linked to more cancers than just the seven.

The cancers most strongly linked to alcohol consumption include a mix of rather common forms and a few that are known to be rare. The evidence supports a connection between alcohol consumption and oropharynx, liver, colon, rectum, breast, larynx and esophageal cancers. The news, some clinicians say, isn’t really all that new since the potential link has long been identified. Alcohol is known to enter the body’s cells and convert to acetaldehyde. This substance is known to damage DNA and is considered a carcinogen as a result.

People who want to lower their risks for the seven implicated cancers and potentially others are urged to avoid alcohol consumption or limit it greatly. Drinking in even moderate amounts can cause a host of health-related concerns that go beyond the scope of cancer.

It is estimated that 1.7 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in the coming year. This figure does not represent the millions of people who will be diagnosed with a form of skin cancer. To prevent cancer’s formation, people are urged to talk to their doctors about their personal risks and what they may do to lower them. Making lifestyle changes, such as maintaining a healthy weight, eating right, avoiding tobacco use and avoiding or limiting alcohol consumption may also prove very helpful. To find out more about personal cancer risks, speak with a qualified healthcare provider for screening and insights.
