Scientists from New Zealand’s University of Otego compared the data of their own research on the communication of cancer, and alcohol. They considered data from several dozen other studies on the same topic all over the world and came to a disappointing conclusion. The development of several types of cancer is really due to the use of liquor. In a study of New Zealand scientists said that in 2012 the cancer, triggered by the use of liquor, caused the death of 236 people over the age of 80 years.

It was found that the use of liquor even in small amounts increases the risk of developing breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and simultaneous disease of the mouth, pharynx, esophagus, larynx and liver. These diseases are widespread and often lead to death.

Most scientists were startled with the data on the development of breast cancer – the most frequent type of cancer in women. More than 60% of all these deaths caused by liquor consumption, according to research by New Zealand scientists, falls on breast cancer. At the same time one third of the patients had used an average of less than two drinks per day. That is, they do not have the lowest dose of alcohol, which can be considered safe – emphasized scientists. Drinking even small amounts of alcohol increases the risk of cell division. The statements about the beneficial effect of small doses of alcohol is hence no more than a dangerous myth.

Even little amount of alcohol can cause death? Yes.


Death from cancer caused by alcohol is 4.2% of the total number of deaths from similar patients over the age of 80 years. The figure seems small, but the researchers believe their study is important: it identified factor that can affect yourself. So, each person at any time can stop drinking liquor and thus greatly reduce the risk of dangerous diseases.
