Alcohol drinking and risks of total and site-specific cancers in China: A 10-year prospective study of 0.5 million adults

Habitual drinking of alcohol may give rise to different types of cancer in men.

This study clarified the association between alcohol usage and the incidence of cancer. Researchers compared alcohol drinking habits and cancer prevalence rates in a study group comprising of more than half a million Chinese men and women over a 10-year period. 

Researchers noted that alcohol drinking accounted for 7% of all cases of cancer, including oral, throat, esophageal, lung, gallbladder, and colorectal cancer, among males in the study population. This Chinese study identified a harmful relationship between alcohol intake and cancer development in men.
