Alcohol consumers are more likely to develop colorectal cancer than non-consumers of alcoholic beverages.

This study examined the relationship between alcohol drinking and colorectal cancer development risk by meta-analysis. Twenty-seven cohort and thirty-four case-control studies were included in this meta-analysis. Researchers observed that colorectal cancer was widespread among consumers of alcoholic drinks. The results of this meta-analysis support the hypothesis that alcohol consumption is a huge contributing factor to the development of colorectal cancer.
