Victoria, B.C.-Health professionals in Canada are joining forces to help people realize that alcohol is one of top causes of preventable cancer. They say that few Canadians know the truth: Any amount of alcohol can cause cancer.
"Even drinking one drink a day increases your risk of some cancers-including, if you're a woman, breast cancer-but also cancers of the digestive system, the mouth, stomach," Tim Stockwell, a senior scientist with the Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research at the University of Victoria told CBC news recently. "The risk increases with every drink you take."
