Drinking alcohol is not good for our health as well as smoking are not good for our health. What I do not understand with so many people is that they continue on their vices no matter how government and health professional inform them of the bad effects of it. Some of them will not stop because they do not feel the side effects of it abruptly. May be that is one of the reasons why they continue on.
World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has warned the drinking alcohol increases risk of cancer.
There is now strong evidence that alcohol increases risk of breast cancer, bowel cancer, kidney cancer and cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx and esophagus.
WCRF recommend that if people drink alcohol at all, they limit consumption to two drinks a day for a man and one for a woman.
