Does consuming too much alcohol cause certain kinds of cancer?  Well there is a study that is reporting that yes there is a link.

Main points of the study:

  • 10% of all cancers in men and 3% in women in Western Europe are caused by drinking too much.
  • Out of 79,100 cancer cases that 50,400 of them were caused by over drinkers.
  • You can prevent cancer by reducing your alcohol intake to below recommended guidelines or quitting drinking completely.

So what is considered too much?  Doctors recommend only 2 alcoholic drinks per day for men and only 1 alcoholic drink per day for women.

If you’re going to drink, drink responsibly and follow the recommended dosage!
