Cancer: A’strong’ toxin found in a popular British drink causes uncontrollable cell growth.
Anyone who drinks a popular British beverage may be jeopardizing their health.
There is “strong” evidence that this can “cause multiple types of cancer.”
The National Cancer Institute warned that the more of the carcinogenic liquid a person drinks, the greater the risk of developing cancer.
Ethanol, also known as alcohol, is the substance that has been linked to cancer.
Alcohol consumption has been linked to head and neck cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer, and bowel cancer in “clear patterns.”
“Moderate drinkers have 1.8-fold higher risks of oral cavity and pharynx (throat) cancers,” according to the National Cancer Institute.
“As well as a 1.4-fold increased risk of laryngeal (voice box) cancer compared to non-drinkers.”
Heavy drinkers, on the other hand, are five times more likely to develop head and neck cancer.
These dangers are “substantially increased” in people who drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes.
Moderate drinking, according to the organization, is defined as two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women.
On the other hand, “heavy drinking” is defined as having four or more alcoholic drinks on any given day, or eight or more alcoholic beverages per week.
Alcohol is thought to increase the risk of cancer in a variety of ways, according to researchers.
According to one theory, acetaldehyde is toxic to the body when ethanol (alcohol) is broken down into it.
Acetaldehyde is thought to cause damage to DNA and proteins, making it carcinogenic (causes cancer).
Another theory is that ethanol produces “reactive oxygen species,” which are chemically reactive oxygen-containing molecules.
These are said to cause oxidative damage to DNA, proteins, and fats in the body.
Ethanol is also thought to affect the body’s ability to break down and absorb essential nutrients like folate, vitamin A, C, and E, as well as carotenoids.
“Alcoholic beverages may also contain a variety of carcinogenic contaminants introduced during fermentation and production,” according to the National Cancer Institute.
Nitrosamines, asbestos fibers, phenols, and hydrocarbons are all examples of harmful substances.
Genetics do play a role in whether or not a person develops cancer, according to the health organization.
“Genes, particularly genes that encode enzymes involved in metabolising (breaking down) alcohol, influence a person’s risk of alcohol-related cancers,” the organization explained.
The primary focus of research has been on whether or not a person’s risk of developing head and neck cancer decreases after quitting drinking.
While abstaining from alcohol “is not linked to immediate reductions in.
