Breast Cancer’s Alcohol and Obesity Link


Even more evidence has emerged, to motivate drinkers to do so moderately.

A group of scientists from the University of NSW have identified 2 factors that they believe may increase women’s breast cancer risk – regular alcohol consumption and excessive weight gain.

From data, scientists predict by 2030 these risk factors will be responsible for about 30,000 cases of breast cancer.

According to scientists alcohol will play a role in 13 per cent of breat cancer cases in pre-menopausal women and so will obesity or being overweight.

The World Cancer Research Fund also found similar evidence, stating that a person’s cancer risk climbs the more they drink or enter an unhealthy weight range.
