EU 'Beating Cancer Plan'

In Ireland over 900 people are diagnosed with alcohol-related cancers; one in eight female breast cancers are attributable to alcohol, and around 500 people die from these diseases every year, according to the National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP).

This is why the Public Health Alcohol Act, 2018 has a measure to introduce mandatory health warning on all alcohol products sold in Ireland, including a warning informing the public of the direct link between alcohol and fatal cancers.
