Consumption of alcohol and risk of cancer among men: a 30 year cohort study in Lithuania

Regular drinking of alcohol may bump up the risk of cancer in men.

The purpose of this study was to conduct a cancer risk assessment among consumers and non-consumers of alcoholic beverages. Researchers meticulously examined 30 years worth of lifestyle and health data from thousands of men from Lithuania. 

Researchers identified an unfavorable association between alcohol intake and increased incidence of cancer. An estimated 13% of all cancer cases among men in Lithuania were attributed to alcohol drinking. Based on the data from this study, men who enjoy taking alcohol may be at risk of developing cancer.
