"The talking points that we are telling patients and providers is to decrease your cancer risk, drink less".
It's not every day that a group of the nation's top cancer doctors asks people to curb their drinking.
In a statement released November 7 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, ASCO said it has evidence identifying alcohol consumption as a definite cancer risk, citing 5 to 6 percent of new cancers and deaths related to cancer around the world as directly tied to alcoholic use.
"We made a decision to push this out because.we were looking over our portfolio of various statements on primary prevention of cancer and we realized that we did not have a statement on alcohol", Noelle LoConte, a representative of ASCO, told International Business Times Tuesday.
The statement also cites a recent report from the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research, which concluded that there is convincing evidence that drinking alcohol can be a cause of seven cancers.
The US Department of Health and Human Services lists alcohol as a known human carcinogen.
People living with cancer remain at risk for other cancer and hence should not drink even small or moderate amounts of alcohol.
You might want to think twice before you pour a glass of wine with dinner. However, the risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus, oropharyngeal and breast cancer were elevated even among light drinkers (one or fewer drinks per day).
The researchers behind ASCO's latest statement agree. If you don't drink, don't start.
As of 2013, about 73 per cent of Americans reported consuming alcohol, and almost 13 per cent described their consumption habits as binge drinking, according to a survey published in JAMA Psychiatry in August. ASCO recently did a survey and they found out that a large majority of physicians and patients were not aware of the association - this is also an opportunity to spread awareness. The women in the studies who were the most active had a lower risk of developing cancer compared with those who exercised the least.
Alcohol, Dr LoConte says, "interferes with the absorption of folate, which is a critical step in the development of colon cancer".
