Study: Moderate alcohol use raises cancer risk
People who consume alcohol are being warned that a new study has found even moderate drinking can raise the risk of dying from cancer.
Alcohol use accounts to about 3.5 percent of all U.S. cancer deaths every year. A majority of those who died consumed at least three drinks every day. However, the study found that people who consumed 1.5 alcoholic beverages daily were also at high risk of death.
Researchers aren't sure how alcohol contributes to cancer.
The study appears in the American Journal of Public Health.
