Drinking Alcohol Increases Breast Cancer Risk

Cutting down on alcohol can make a difference in your level of breast cancer risk. Compared to those who don't drink, just one drink a day can increase your breast cancer risk by about 14 percent, according to drinklessforyourbreasts.org.


Most women are unaware of alcohol's risks and its connection to breast cancer. According to researchers at Kennesaw State University, only one in four women surveyed knew that alcohol is a risk factor for breast cancer. Fully understanding alcohol's health risks can help people make more informed choices about how they consume it.


More than 100 studies have looked at drinking alcohol and the risk of breast cancer in women and they all found that the risk of breast cancer increases as alcohol consumption increases. You can't control things like being born female, aging or family history of breast cancer, but you can control how much you drink.
