Death by alcohol?

Excessive drinking will cause more than 135,000 Brits to die of alcohol-related cancer by 2035 research suggests.

The study by Sheffield University and Cancer Research UK estimates that alcohol will cost the NSH £53 billion over the next decade including £2 billion on cancer.
The survey has also found that although alcohol can trigger many types of cancer including breast, throat, and bowel, the majority of the public are unaware of the threat.

Figures show that a fifth of men and 1 in 10 women have alcohol every day and are not conforming to the National guidelines of any more than 14 units per week with a recommended several alcohol-free days per week.

Experts are particularly worried about this group, as they believe moderate drinking over long periods may trigger cancer.

In light of this where do you stack up when it comes to your personal drinking behavior? Are you at risk of cancer?
