Alcohol drinkers are highly vulnerable to oral, pharyngeal, laryngeal, esophageal, colorectal, liver, and breast cancers.
This study investigated the correlation between alcohol consumption and cancer risk. Researchers examined data extracted from the 2009 International Agency for Research on Cancer monograph and relevant epidemiological studies. They observed that drinking of alcoholic beverages promoted the development of cancerous cells and tumors in the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, colon, rectum, liver, and female breast. The findings of this study reveal that alcohol intake may contribute positively to development of oral, pharyngeal, laryngeal, esophageal, colorectal, liver, and breast cancers.
