Minimise Cancer Risk by Drinking in Moderation, Expert Warns

Experts have warned that drinking should be done in moderation in order to minimise our cancer risk.

Another important aspect of avoiding cancer is exercise and diet which Australian research has found could be the key to saving more than 200,000 people for cancer.

The researchers say being overweight was linked to 190,500 cancer deaths and a further 19,200 cancer deaths were linked to low exercise rates.

While exercise and diet are crucial in minimising cancer risk, moderately consuming alcohol is also key.

Remember that ethanol (alcohol) is carcinogenic itself and too much of it can cause cancer. Stick to the recommended guidelines of no more than 2 standard drinks a day to reduce your lifetime risk of harm from alcohol.
