Two new studies just published in the British Medical Journal says that even light to moderate intake of alcohol increases the risk of cancer especially that of the breast.
This risk is increased in men if they also smoke.
The study involving 100,000 persons was carried out in the United States of America.
In the studies, light to moderate drink was taken as a small glass of wine a day for women and two bottles of beer a day for men.
A British cancer expert Sarah Williams believes that cutting down on alcohol reduces the risk of cancer.
