Lifetime consumption of alcoholic beverages and risk of 13 different types of cancer in men: results from a case-control study in Montreal.

Men who are moderate and heavy drinkers of alcohol are highly vulnerable to esophageal, liver, prostate, stomach, colon, pancreatic, and lung cancer.

This study investigated the role regular intake of alcoholic beverages play in the development of different types of cancer. Researchers examined the alcohol consumption rate of thousands of men residing in Montreal, Canada. The relative risk of developing liver, pancreas, prostate, bladder, colon, rectum, esophagus, kidney, lung, stomach, melanoma, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was determined in each participant in this study.

Researchers observed that regular consumers of alcoholic products, such as wine, beer, and spirits, had high chances of developing esophageal, stomach, colon, liver, pancreatic, prostate, and lung cancer compared to occasional and non-consumers of alcoholic beverages. The results of this study reveal that moderate and high consumption of alcohol may accelerate the development and proliferation of cancerous cells in different parts of the body.
