There is a strong link between alcohol and cancer.
Alcohol is responsible for more than 5,000 new cancer cases in Australia each year.
Alcohol is currently classified as a Group 1 carcinogen. That’s the same classification held by tobacco smoke and asbestos.
Research shows there is no safe level of alcohol consumption, and the risk of alcohol-related cancers increases with the amount you drink.
But reducing your alcohol use can reduce your risk.
