Alcohol and Cancer

Alcohol and Cancer

The less alcohol you drink, the lower your risk for cancer.

Drinking alcohol raises your risk of getting six kinds of cancer—

Mouth and throat.
Voice box (larynx).
Esophagus.
Colon and rectum.
Liver.
Breast (in women).
All types of alcoholic drinks, including red and white wine, beer, cocktails, and liquor, are linked with cancer. The more you drink, the higher your cancer risk.
