“Alcohol Increases Risk of At Least Five Cancers”
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared alcohol to be a cancer-causing agent (carcinogen) in 1988. However, so-called “responsible drinking” gives one a free pass to drink alcohol in moderation. But there is incriminating data against alcohol consumption, which says that no amount of alcohol is safe, and this is the conclusion of the 2014 World Cancer Report (WCR), issued by the World Health Organization’s IARC. It concluded that the more alcohol that a person drinks, the higher the risk. The alcohol/cancer link has been strengthened by the finding of a dose/response relationship between alcohol consumption and certain cancers. And here is the kicker: a causal relationship exists between alcohol consumption and cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, colon-rectum, liver, and female breast; a significant relationship also exists between alcohol consumption and pancreatic cancer. Beyond reduced immunity, the short-lived pains of a hangover, and increased risk of infection, high levels of alcohol consumption have been scientifically proven to increase the risk of much more serious disease: cancer. With the stresses of 2020, Americans are heading to the liquor store in huge numbers.
