The 11-page ASCO statement on alcohol and cancer also states that coalition between alcohol drinking and cancer risk have been watched persistently never the less of the particular type of alcoholic beverages denoting the commonality between the alcohol and specific cancers was not privy to consumption of just beer, wine, or other types of liquor.

The society also level charges against alcohol companies for "pinkwashing", or "exploiting the color pink or pink ribbons to show commitment to finding a cure for breast cancer given the evidence that alcohol consumption is linked to an increase risk of breast cancer".

"The message is not, 'Don't drink.' It's, 'If you want to reduce your cancer risk, drink less", said Dr. Noelle LoConte, lead author of the statement.

In the USA, it is estimated that 3.5 per cent of all cancer deaths are linked to alcohol, and in 2012, 5.5 per cent of all new cancer diagnoses and 5.8 per cent of deaths worldwide were attributable to alcohol consumption. "The Cancer Prevention Committee of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) believes that a proactive stance by the Society to minimize excessive exposure to alcohol has important implications for cancer prevention". Heavy drinkers face a much longer list of risks, including mouth cancer, throat cancer, cancer of the voice box, liver cancer, and colorectal cancer. "And if you don't drink, don't start". Research highlighted by the National Cancer Institute suggests that the more alcohol you drink - particularly the more you drink regularly - the higher your risk of developing cancer. "If you drink more, drinking less will definitely reduce your risk", she says.

"We also can't ignore the fact that in many United States counties a quarter of the people, or more, are binge drinkers". The connection between rising alcohol intake and cancer has been substantially confirmed. "Don't start.' This is a little more subtle".

"However, the link between increased alcohol consumption and cancer has been firmly established", Johnson said.

"That puts some weight behind this", she said.
