ASCO: Alcohol Linked to Several Types of Cancer

While existing studies suggested that, alcohol consumption at a certain level may reduce the risk of early diabetes and is good for your health, a call to action to minimize alcohol consumption has recently been issued by the doctors from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). However, the risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus, oropharyngeal and breast cancer were elevated even among light drinkers (one or fewer drinks per day).
"If you don't drink, don't start", says Dr LoConte, and "if you do drink try to stay under the recommendations of 1 or less per day for women and 2 or less per day for men".
Between five and six percent of new cancers and cancer deaths globally are directly attributed to alcohol, yet only 38 percent of Americans limit their intake of alcohol to reduce their risk for cancer, the organization wrote.
As of 2013, about 73 per cent of Americans reported consuming alcohol, and almost 13 per cent described their consumption habits as binge drinking, according to a survey published in JAMA Psychiatry in August.

According to the new research conducted by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), numerous leading cancer doctors over the nation are driving attention to the associations between cancer and alcohol.
The authors write that the number of adults who binge drink has been increasing during the past decade. Oncologists have the ability to identify strategies to help patients reduce their alcohol intake; address racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual orientation disparities that may place these populations at increased cancer risk; and serve as community advisors and leaders to raise awareness of alcohol as a cancer risk behavior. The group likewise opposes "pink washing", in which alcohol companies drape their products in pink ribbon to enhance sales, a practice it opposes "given the consistent evidence that shows the link between alcohol consumption and an increased risk of breast cancer". Dr. Noelle LoConte, lead author of the statement, clarified ASCO's statement in an article for the NY Times. She added that this can also cause confusion because of the various types of alcohol available.
