Cut alcohol and slash your cancer risk
Cutting out alcohol and bacon from your diet may be one of the toughest things to do, but it could slash the risk of cancer
Dr. Giota Mitou, WRCF Director of research funding, released a study finding that there is “strong evidence” in linking alcohol and processed meats to several forms of cancer.
As most death rates of cancer are on the decline, liver cancer is on the rise since 1980.
In fact, it’s doubled over that period of time for men. In recent years, in women, it’s trended higher.
Alcohol consumption in the U.S. since 1998 have been on the rise.
We know that your liver and alcohol don’t mix. Now with the evidence and data to back it, studies warn that alcohol is strongly linked to an increased risk of six cancers.
New York is in the top half of the drunkest states in America. Where almost 1 in 5 adults drink excessively.
The statistics from these studies show that lifestyle choices have a large impact on your prevention of cancer.
Being able to curb your alcohol intake (it’s best not to drink alcohol) will slash your risk.
Do your liver a favor, huh?
