Alcohol consumption

Alcohol consumption, with an estimated contribution of about 3%, is far less significant than smoking and diet. But in contrast to these well-established risk factors, large segments of the population are unaware of the association between heavy drinking and increased cancer risk. The main cancer sites that have been linked to alcohol consumption are the oral cavity, pharynx, esophagus, larynx, and liver.
