“Alcohol is a carcinogen. This means it causes cancer.
The less you drink, the lower your risk of developing alcohol-related cancer.
Each year in Ireland:
1,000 people are diagnosed with alcohol-related cancers.
Alcohol causes at least 260 breast cancers.
Alcohol increases the risk of head, neck and oesophageal (gullet) cancers.
People who drink heavily are five times more likely to get these cancers than non-drinkers.”
