Can't find good info on Alcohol-Cancer research
Don't have the answers at my fingertips. There is however lots of
epidemiological evidence linking alcohol to potentiation of carcinogenesis
from tobacco use.
The evidence of cancer risk from alcohol alone is much less clear.
One concern is that the high alcohol content of mouth washes makes them a
cancer risk. I remember seeing a study recently that found no association
of mouthwash use and cancer.
The strongest oral cancer association are lip and pipe smoking, and
other oral cancers and cigars and smokeless tobacco. But anyone who has
seen many oral cancer patients are both heavy smokers and heavy drinkers.
