Sadly, most people just do not understand that drinking alcohol is a major cause of cancers – particularly liver and breast cancers.
According to the latest information from the eight European countries participating in the international decades-long EPIC study, 13% of the incidence of total cancer was attributable to former and current alcohol consumption
This is a massive cause of cancer – across the world and especially in New Zealand, Australia and the UK.
