Alcohol and Cancer: A Statement of the American Society of Clinical Oncology

​Alcohol consumers are highly vulnerable to oral, pharyngeal, laryngeal, esophageal (squamous cell carcinoma), liver, breast, and colorectal cancers.

This study investigated the correlation between alcohol intake and cancer risk. A dozen of the nation's top oncologists from the American Society of Clinical Oncologists analyzed the effect of alcohol consumption on the odds of developing cancer.

The ASCO researchers found a positive association between moderate, heavy, and even light alcohol drinking and cancer risk; the higher the amounts of alcohol consumed, the greater the risk of developing cancer. Consumers of alcoholic beverages was found to have higher risk of developing several types of cancer, including oral, pharyngeal, laryngeal, esophageal (squamous cell carcinoma), liver, breast, and colorectal, than non-drinkers. The researchers from the American Society of Clinical Oncologists concluded that light, moderate, and heavy drinking of alcohol may contribute positively to the development of many types of cancer.
