Just remember that “moderation” can be interpreted widely, especially when it comes to counting our weekly alcohol intake. This recent meta-analysis looked at all the studies that have evaluated the increased cancer risk from “light drinking”; defined as having up to 1 alcoholic drink a day. That’s anywhere from 1 to 7 glasses/week. The results came in that on average, this “light” amount of drinking still increases your risk of developing cancer of the breast, mouth, pharynx and oesophageus. Take home message: less alcohol = less cancer risk!
