DID YOU KNOW DRINKING CAN CAUSE CANCER? 1/8/2018 9:08:55 AM
Want to lower your risk of cancer? Drink less alcohol.
When it comes to alcohol, the more a person drinks, the higher the risk of cancer.
Health Promoter with the Grey Bruce Health Unit Jason Weppler, indicates drinking less can lower your risk of colorectal, breast and liver cancers as well as head and neck cancers.
Weppler says it isn't too late to make 'drinking less' your New Year's Resolution.
Research shows that only 1/3 of Canadians are aware that they can lower their risk of cancer by reducing how much alcohol they drink, and in 2010 Cancer Care Ontario estimated alcohol caused roughly 3000 cases of cancer in the province.
