Limit your alcohol intake

Drinking more than the recommended amount of alcohol increases your cancer risk, especially if you smoke. 

In particular, alcohol plays a role in mouth and throat cancer, but it can also increase your risk of bowel and breast cancer. 

The European Code Against Cancer recommends that, to reduce cancer risk, men should drink no more than two units of alcohol a day and women no more than one unit a day. A unit is half a pint of ordinary strength beer, lager or cider, one small glass (125ml) of wine or a single measure (25ml) of spirits.
