New Study Links Moderate Alcohol Consumption To Cancer
According to a new study to be published in the April edition of the American Journal of Public Health, consuming as few as 1.5 alcoholic drinks a day can boost your risk of dying from cancer.
Dr. Timothy Naimi, the study’s director and an associate professor at the Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health, considers these findings to be a crucial public health message. Some experts, however, argue that the study dismisses important potential benefits of moderate alcohol consumption.
