Alcohol linked to at least 7 cancers

Post by Sephiroth81 » Fri Jul 22, 2016 7:45 am

I'm sure most of us here are well aware of the dangers of consuming alcohol, but further research does help. At least 7 types of cancer have now been linked to consumption of alcohol (mouth/throat, larynx, oesophagus, liver, colon, bowel and breast), with almost 6% of cancer deaths in 2012 linked to the drug. I'm pleased that the government and scientists are taking this seriously though at least and modifying and changing drinking guidelines. I would like for alcohol to be treated in a similar way to tobacco in terms of advertising though (as entertaining and amusing as some alcohol adverts can be, same with the older tobacco commercials). Surely cheap booze also needs further clamping down on and higher taxation to offset the strains it puts on the NHS and policing etc.

Having virtually given up alcohol just a few months ago, it is now more clear to me than ever before that it was the right thing to do. I only wish I had done it sooner and hadn't indulged in alcohol as much during my late teens and twenties. Just hope this binge-drinking culture in young people can be curbed with facts, warnings and common sense. Even drinking in relative moderation is also suspected to be not free from harm.

Sep - you're put MPM out of a job! What do you expect him to do - open a juice bar? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I suppose everything in moderation. RG forumers take heed.

I certainly don't want a ban on alcohol and/or put MPM out of business! But perhaps we could have a better relationship as a country with booze and drink more for relaxation, than getting smashed on friday/saturday nights!

Marko is going to both ban AND bar me now from RG and his pubs respectively :cry: :cry:

Edit : perhaps I need to change my avatar to reflect my abstinence from the booze! If someone can make me that avatar of Brian doing the bong, I'd be happy to replace it with that :D

Fine Sep. You do realise you'll still die like the rest of us though.

I remember when they had that big scare about Bacon-flavoured foods giving you cancer. Disgustingly, Bacon Sizzler Pot Noodles and Bacon Streak Quavers never returned after that.

Damn research.

Dunno about cancer, but bacon mini hula-hoops made me fart like a hippy.

But worrying about what might give you cancer ... can give you cancer.

You have clearly never been to California... there's a label on everything.

Reading gives you cancer

And dipping your tadger in a rocky pool beside the sea gives you crabs

Maybe sharia law would be a good thing in this country then? ban alcohol, ban pork if it gives you cancer.I bet two much anal bumming gives you cancer too so that sharia law would wipe cancer out pretty much.
SH1T HAPPENS :wink:
