Chronic alcohol drinkers are at increased risk of dying from colorectal cancer.

This study explored the association between alcohol consumption and colorectal cancer mortality risk. Researchers analyzed data obtained from nine cohort studies. They discovered that subjects who regularly consumed more than 50g of alcohol per day had higher chances of dying from colorectal cancer than those who occasionally drink or totally avoid alcoholic products. The results of this study show that heavy drinking of alcohol may increase the incidence of colorectal cancer mortality.
