Scientists Discover Alcohol-Cancer Link
Research Finds Connection
Alcohol has been linked to seven types of cancer, including breast and bowel, and scientists at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, in Cambridge, UK, have tracked down a possible cause. In lab tests, they found that when the body processes alcohol, acetaldehyde is produced. Acetaldehyde alters and damages DNA within blood stem cells, leading to rearranged chromosomes and a greater likelihood of cancer.
