Cancer, 1 patient out of 3 consumes alcohol more than they should
More than half of those who had a diagnosis of cancer – 56.5% - drink alcohol, 34.9% goes beyond consumption moderate, and 21% of them binge drinking, i.e. taking 5-6 drinks in the same night. Are the results of a study - a survey for the period 2000/2017 – conducted on the basis of information self-reported collections of over 34mila people with a diagnosis of cancer enrolled in the National Health Interview Survey of the u.s.: the first study of this size made about the relationship between alcohol and the cancer population. Results that have surprised the authors themselves, allarmandoli seen that alcohol is a risk factor proven to the development of cancer. A risk factor For a few example, you know that alcohol contributes to 5.8% of all deaths from cancer in the world (data on 2012), that the cancers related to alcohol are 5.5% of all those treated each year in the world (estimates of Asco, the Association of oncologists Usa, in the Journal of Clinical Oncology), and finally, that the european Code against cancer Iarc, the International agency for research for cancer of the Who, point 6 reads: “If you drink alcohol of any kind, clip it short the consumption. To prevent cancer it is better to avoid drinking alcohol”. But back to the study. Excessive or uncontrolled, always too On the basis of the guidelines prepared by the Cdc in the usa, the Centers of disease control and prevention, the authors have intended for excessive alcohol consumption more than one drink per day for women and two per day for men. Binge drinking, or binge alcoholic, instead provides four drinks in two hours for women and at least five for men (which correspond roughly to a sufficient amount to lead to a 0.08 percent alcohol concentration in the blood). A mode of consumption that, according to several studies, is associated with higher risk of cancer, although wants to point out who has signed for publication - when it comes to cancer there is no research that indicates a safe level of alcohol consumption.

In fact, patients who said they most often drink were survivors of cancers of the cervix, testis, head and neck, and melanoma, diseases that typically affect the less elderly. The consumption of alcohol was less common among the who have survived a diagnosis of breast cancer. Paradoxically, finally, the researchers found that those who drink more also tend to report they feel better. A behaviour change “That the abuse of alcohol (we're not talking about a glass of wine a day during the meal, but of the abuse, in fact) has a direct or indirect role in the onset of cancer is a fact that we are in possession time,” says Giordano Beretta, president of the Aiom (Association of Italian oncologists. “It has to be said – says the publication the expert - that the consumption of alcohol is often associated with other bad habits such as smoking or an unhealthy diet and therefore the effects of these behaviors are added together, to boost. This is then an epidemiological study of the cohort using responses to self-reported, and not always the stories of those who participate in it correspond to reality. In addition, this high prevalence of alcohol consumption among the survivors gives rise to the suspicion that in reality is about people who were already drinkers or smokers before diagnosis, people in short who had risk behaviours and who have kept after the diagnosis of cancer”. The net of all this, “it is clear that we have to do awareness-raising campaigns on relationship between alcohol and cancer diseases, because alcohol is a problem for the onset of cancer, and why we speak of a habit which tends to persist. That is then the data of this study”.
