Increased alcohol use linked with higher risk of cancer in new study

From CNN | Health by Naomi Thomas, CNN

People who increased the amount of alcohol they drank also had an increased risk of cancer, according to the results of a large study in Korea published on Wednesday in JAMA Network Open.

The study found that people who increased the amount they drank had a higher risk of all cancers, including alcohol-related cancers, than the group that made no changes to their drinking habits.

The risk also increased for non-drinkers who changed their habits and became mild, moderate or heavy drinkers.
