“Dry Feb is a fundraiser that challenges you to go alcohol-free in February, and raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. It helps you get healthy and clear your head while also raising funds to make a difference for Canadians affected by cancer.”
What’s the deal with alcohol and cancer?
The sobering news is that any type or amount of alcohol increases your risk of head and neck, breast, stomach, pancreatic, colorectal and liver cancers. Only 1/3 of Canadians are aware that there is a link between alcohol and an increased risk of cancer.
The Canadian Cancer Society recommends that if you choose to drink alcohol, women have less than one drink per day and men have less than two drinks per day. The less you drink, the more you reduce your risk.”
