Frequent drinking of alcohol may increase an individual's chances of developing colorectal cancer.

Researchers observed that habitual consumers of alcohol faced increased risk of having colorectal cancer. The results of this study show that regular ingestion of alcohol may contribute positively to the development of colorectal cancer.
