Intake of Common Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beverages and Breast Cancer Risk among Japanese Women: Findings from the Japan Collaborative Cohort Study

Alcohol ingestion irrespective of the quantity may result in a spike in breast cancer odds in women.

This study examined if greater intake of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages is tied to higher risk of breast cancer in women. Researchers studied 33,396 Japanese women with regards to their alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage drinking habits and occurrence of breast cancer. 

Researchers identified a trend towards increased risk of breast cancer among low, moderate, and heavy consumers of alcoholic beverages. In conclusion, the results of this study suggest that alcohol consumption even at low amounts can predispose a woman to breast cancer.
