Ceasing alcohol consumption leading way to prevent cancer death, study finds

According to a study conducted by the Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and the Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH), the reduction of alcohol consumption can greatly enhance cancer prevention efforts by impeding the continual presence of carcinogens within body systems. Previous studies have cast alcohol as a prime perpetrator in cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, liver, colon, rectum and breasts; past investigations also suggest that alcohol has contributed to four percent of cancer-related deaths worldwide.

Using a lack of literature related to U.S. cancer mortality in association with alcohol as one incentive to delve, the Boston cohort set out for concrete answers to place on the page. Timothy Naimi, MD, MPH, from the Department of Medicine at BUSM, along with colleagues from the National Cancer Institute, the Alcohol Research Group, Public Health Institute and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, discovered that alcohol promoted the deaths of approximately 20,000 cancer patients annually — nearly 3.5 percent of all cancer deaths in the country.

Breast cancer was found to be the most alcohol-attributable driver of cancer death in woman, with 6,000 fatalities occurring annually — approximately 15 percent of all breast cancer deaths. For men, cancers of the mouth, throat and esophagus were the most common causes of alcohol-attributable cancer death, also resulting in about 6,000 deaths annually.

Furthermore, the study team made a startling calculation of potential life loss due to alcohol-attributable cancer deaths, with a staggering 18 years assumed to be lost due to such conditions.“In addition, although higher levels of alcohol consumption led to a higher cancer risk, average consumption of 1.5 drinks per day or less accounted for 30 percent of all alcohol-attributable cancer deaths,” the report found.

I wonder what the rate is for Anal Cancer in Demokrats that mix Thorazine with their "Poppers" and Booze?

As a Demokrat in Good Standing, have you shared this concern about your health with the Dr's at your "Free Clinic"?
