Alcohol Intake and Colorectal Cancer Risk in the Multiethnic Cohort Study.

Alcohol consumption may increase the odds of acquiring colorectal cancer.

​This research work investigated the impact of alcohol intake on the incidence of colorectal cancer. A team of scientists monitored the alcohol consumption levels and rate of colorectal cancer diagnosis in a study population comprising of more than 190,000 black, Native Hawaiian, Japanese-American, Latino, and white persons residing in Hawaii and California. 

The research team observed a high prevalence of colorectal cancer among alcohol drinkers in all the different ethnic groups, except among the blacks. Evidence from this study show that fondness for alcohol might be a contributing factor to the high rates of colorectal cancer in the United States.
