One beer a day increases liver and bowel cancer risk
Many people drink a glass or two of red wine a day because they have heard of its health benefits in relation to heart disease but new information from the World Cancer Fund says that a glass of beer a day or two glasses of wine can increase your chance of getting bowel or liver cancer by a fith.
The risk of getting inflicted with liver and bowel cancer define increases by up to 20 percent in people who drink one pint of beer everyday, as per scientists at the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF).
The same kind of harmful effects can be possible in people who consume a large glass of wine, vodka or gin every day.
According to Dr. Rachel Thompson, Science Programme Manager at the WCRF, the probability of getting affected with bowel and liver cancer define increases a lot if a person intakes two units of alcohol daily.
Dr. Thompson said, “If you are drinking a pint of lager or a large glass of wine everyday, then this might not seem like a lot.” She further added, “But the science shows you are increasing your risk of bowel cancer by 18 percent and your risk of liver cancer by 20 percent.”
But she agreed that many people are still not aware of the cancer risk associated with alcohol despite the fact that a multitude of studies have shown this relation.
