OK, quick answer, yes or no? Does drinking alcohol raise cancer risk?
If you answered no, you’re not alone.
A national survey, by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, ASCO, revealed that most Americans, even we medical types, are unaware of alcohol and the link to cancer even when drinking small amounts.
Let’s look at alcohol in terms of how much, what type, and risk for various types of cancer. Joining me on the podcast is registered dietitian nutritionist Wendy Kaplan who specializes in oncology nutrition. She served for several years as the Director of Nutrition for a Cancer Non-profit and currently consults for non-profit community organizations. Her focus is how medical nutrition therapy makes a difference in response to cancer treatment, post-treatment complications and how patients feel.
Listen now and let’s get right to the research and what you need to know about alcohol and the link to cancer.
