New Report Links Alcohol to Cancer

Around 13,000 people in the UK contract cancer every year through alcohol, according to new research.

The study, conducted across eight European countries, found that in Britain, alcohol was responsible for 2,500 breast cancers every year and one in 10 cancers in men.

Sarah Matthews of the British Liver Trust, said: ‘Once again we are seeing the impact alcohol can have in all areas of health.

‘While alcohol damage is often linked to the liver, this study highlights the impact alcohol has on the rest of the organs in the body,’ she added.
