Alcohol Blamed For Cancer

Alcohol is being blamed for hundreds of thousands of cancer deaths around the world. The International Journal of Cancer is now reporting that 3.6 percent of all cancer cases are related to alcohol. More than 60 percent of alcohol related cancers in men were in the upper digestive tract. For women the same percentage of cancers were in the breast.While researchers working on this study agree with earlier findings that moderate drinking can be good for you, they warn that alcohol is also linked to many forms of deadly cancer.
