Only one in 10 people know that alcohol causes cancer In the same survey , undertaken by OnePoll for the Alcohol Health Alliance (AHA) of charities and medical groups, 77% of respondents said they supported the idea of a cancer warning being added to the labels of alcoholic products.

A large proportion (84 per cent) also recognised that alcohol can cause obesity and excess body weight. Yet only around four in 10 people (40 per cent) linked alcohol with bowel cancer , and just under half with mouth and throat cancers .

The Alcohol Health Alliance UK (AHA) looked into public attitudes towards alcohol and found very few people knew of the damage alcohol can cause the body.

Drinking booze can damage the liver, cause pancreatitis (inflammation in the pancreas) and increase the risk of developing seven different types of cancer, according to Cancer Research UK.

In fact, alcohol contributes to over 12,000 cancer cases in the UK each year, according to the charity’s expert on cancer prevention Professor Linda Bauld.

Cancer Patients Less Likely To Have Chemo If Diagnosed Early, Research Reveals

  Cancer Patients Less Likely To Have Chemo If Diagnosed Early, Research Reveals A patient’s cancer treatment plan has been linked to the stage of diagnosis for the first time in new findings.  Researchers from Cancer Research UK and Public Health England have revealed whether NHS patients received surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, alone or in combination, linked with their cancer stage. Patients are five times more likely to have surgery to remove their tumour, and far less likely to have chemotherapy, if they are diagnosed sooner rather than later.

Scientists recently discovered that drinking alcohol damages the DNA blueprint in stem cells, which might be what causes cancer.

They gave ethanol to mice and analysed their chromosomes before and after. The analysis revealed acetaldehyde, a harmful chemical produced when the body processes alcohol, changed the animals’ DNA sequencing.  

Acetaldehyde was able to break and damage the DNA leading to permanent rearrangement of chromosomes. This is important because such faulty cells give rise to cancer. 

The research also suggested that some groups of people might be more vulnerable to this cellular-level damage than others.

Aspirin may protect against some cancers, trial finds

  Aspirin may protect against some cancers, trial finds Taking aspirin may have a protective effect against a number of cancers, a new study suggests. A trial involving more than 600,000 people found that long-term aspirin use appeared to reduce a person's risk of a number of digestive cancers as well as leukaemia, lung and prostate cancer.The study, which is to be presented to the United European Gastroenterology (UEG) Week meeting in Barcelona, saw researchers compare cancer incidence among non-aspirin users and people who had been prescribed the drug for at least six months.

AHA’s survey revealed it’s not just public knowledge surrounding the health dangers of alcohol that is lacking. Just 16% of people are aware of the weekly alcohol guidelines (14 units a week for both men and women), which were announced two years ago. 

Meanwhile just one in 20 people are aware of the official advice on children’s drinking, which is that an alcohol-free childhood is best. England’s Chief Medical Officer said that if children do try alcohol, they should be at least 15 years old and in a supervised environment.

Eight out of 10 people want alcohol labels to include the weekly guidelines and a warning that exceeding the guidelines can damage health. As such, experts have called on the Government to do more to ensure alcohol packaging is better labelled.

Professor Sir Ian Gilmore, chair of the AHA, said: “It is clear from our polling that the public want to be informed of the risks linked with alcohol, including the link with cancer, and that they want to see clear warning information on alcohol labels about the drinking guidelines and the risks of drinking at levels above these guidelines.

“To this end, the government should introduce mandatory labelling of all alcoholic products, to ensure that the public and parents are fully informed about the risks.”

Caroline Moye, head of World Cancer Research Fund UK (WCRF UK), said: “AHA’s new research shows a clear public call for alcohol product labels to carry a warning about the link between alcohol and cancer, and the Government should put these warning labels in place. Government cannot leave the communication of cancer risks to the alcohol industry.”
