Diet, Alcohol and Cancer

Diet, Alcohol and Cancer

Articles about the effect your diet and alcohol use can have on cancer risk.


Alcohol Use and Cancer Risk

Alcohol use can increase your risk of developing several types of cancer, including cancers of the mouth, throat (pharynx), voice box (larynx), esophagus (swallowing tube), liver, breast (in women), colon and rectum. The risk increases after just 1 drink a day for women or 2 for men.

Diet and Cancer Risk

A healthy diet, regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight have been linked to a lower risk of developing cancer. These three components make up the “cancer prevention triangle” and working to improve one can often lead to improvements in another.

Quitting Alcohol Use Can Reduce Cancer Risk

Heavy alcohol users who quit drinking are taking an important step to reducing their cancer risk, as well as improving their health and reducing the risk of other alcohol related health problems. The risk for alcohol related cancers is reduced over time.
