Alcohol and cancer

Alcohol and cancer draws on the latest research to explain the relationship between alcohol and cancer and why this is a problem that the UK needs to tackle now. Alcohol is one of the most important preventable causes of cancer in the UK. The more a person drinks overall the higher their risk of developing cancer, yet even drinking within current guidelines can increase the risk for certain cancers. There is no level of drinking that can be considered ‘safe’ from the risk of cancer. Despite these risks, the UK population continues to drink substantially more than it did 50 years ago. The solution is clear — reducing how much people drink overall will reduce their risk of cancer.
