“There is increasing research evidence about the causal role of alcohol in cancer, accompanied by unclear and conflicting messages in the media.”

“…the epidemiological evidence can support the judgement that alcohol causes cancer of the oropharynx, larynx, oesophagus, liver, colon, rectum and breast.”

“…..epidemiological studies also commonly report protection from cardiovascular disease associated with drinking but a high level of scepticism regarding these findings is now warranted.”

“There is strong evidence that alcohol causes cancer at seven sites in the body and probably others.”
