The more you drink, the greater the risk
Did you know that alcohol is in the same cancer-causing category as tobacco smoke and asbestos? They are all Group 1 carcinogens and alcohol is responsible for around 12,500 cases of cancer each year. But, importantly, you can reduce the risk by cutting down on how much alcohol you drink and that’s what we want to talk to you about…
