Alcohol and cancer risk

Key clinical evidence for alcohol (wine) and health

The following is a list of key clinical studies which have examined the impact of alcohol and wine consumption on health and risk of dying prematurely. The list of studies is by no means exhaustive but includes many of the pivotal ones which have been highly influential over the last few decades.

Studies relating to alcohol addiction have not been included as the literature evidence linking abuse with alcohol is well documented and generally associated with other psychological or social problems except in special groups such as teenagers or the mentally ill.
