Alcohol and cancer risk: A systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective Indian studies

Alcohol use may lead to the development of cancer.

This study investigated the alcohol-cancer connection hypothesis using a meta-analytic approach. Researchers pooled data obtained from 29 studies conducted in India. 

Data analysis revealed that regular drinking of alcohol drove up an individual's odds of developing cancer significantly. "The result from our meta-analysis supports our hypothesis that alcohol consumption increases the risk of cancer, implying immediate cessation of the habit for cancer risk reduction," the study concluded.
