UNDATED (WTVB) - It shouldn’t come as a surprise, the connection between too much booze and the “C” word. Researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine and the School of Public Health say alcohol is a large contributor to cancer deaths. The researchers released a study that says alcohol is the cause of about 20-thousand cancer deaths annually, which accounts for three-point-five percent of all U.S. cancer deaths.

For women, the most common deadly cancer from alcohol was breast cancer, for men it was cancers of the mouth, throat and esophagus. The study showed drinking even small amounts could account for an increased cancer risk. Thirty-percent of all the cancer deaths attributed to alcohol were from those who had an average daily consumption of one and a half drinks or less.
