Systematic review with meta-analysis: alcohol consumption and the risk of colorectal adenoma.

​Alcohol drinking may elevate the risk of colorectal cancer.

It has been established that most adenomas in the colon and rectum develop into cancerous cells and tumors in the large bowel. This study investigated the hypothesis that alcohol consumption is associated with increased risk of acquiring colorectal adenomas. Researchers from China analyzed data extracted from 25 studies that examined the alcohol intake as a risk factor for the formation of colorectal adenomas. 

The research team noted that the more the frequency of alcohol consumption the higher the chances of having colorectal adenomas. Data from this study support the notion that regular drinking of alcohol may promote the formation of adenomas in the colon and rectum, and consequently put an individual at high risk of having colorectal cancer.
