A META-ANALYSIS OF 35 EXISTING STUDIES CONCLUDES that prostate cancer can be associated with heavier alcohol consumption, according to the UVic-based Centre for Addictions Research of BC, and colleagues in the US and Australia. They found that men who drink two or more standard drinks a day (or 14 drinks a week) or more have a 20 per cent greater chance of developing prostate cancer. They added that more research is needed on the balance of risks and benefits for different types of disease from drinking alcohol at different levels. The findings were reported in the journal, Molecular Nutrition and Food Research.
