Heavy liquor consumption linked to increased chance of pancreatic cancer

March 15, 2011 | Topic(s) : Health and Beauty for seniors


As the baby boomer generation ages, new studies are being conducted that are examining the effects of alcohol on different parts of the body. Some recent research has found that drinking too much liquor may lead to pancreatic cancer.

The study began in 1982 and lasted through 2006, evaluating a total of around a million participants – 453,770 men and 576,697 women. Generally, it was found that four or more glasses of liquor a day contributed to an increased risk of pancreatic cancer in women, while men only had to drink three glasses a day.

Those who are worried that they may suffer from a health condition and need to be able to instantly contact a hospital may want to install a personal emergency response system. This device can be used to instantly send a medical alert to healthcare professionals.

"Alcoholic beverage consumption – a modifiable lifestyle factor – is causally related to several cancers, including oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, liver, colorectum and female breast," the authors wrote. "Heavy alcohol consumption causes acute and chronic pancreatitis but has never been linked definitively to pancreatic cancer."
