Alcohol Industry is Misleading Consumers About Cancer Risk


From MinnPost: According to an international team of researchers, the alcohol industry is misleading the public by misrepresenting and downplaying evidence linking alcohol consumption with cancer.

“For the study, researchers analyzed consumer-oriented websites and documents published between September and December 2016 by 26 organizations linked to the alcohol industry. All the organizations were in English-speaking countries or had information available in English. The researchers looked to see if the information gave consumers a complete and accurate description of the scientific evidence regarding alcohol consumption and cancer.

They found that 24 of the 26 websites significantly misrepresented or omitted scientific evidence about the relationship between alcohol consumption and cancer.”
