  • In a statement, the American Society of Clinical Oncology asked Americans to drink less alcohol.

  • The group, which includes the nation’s top cancer doctors, cited several years of research that links alcohol — even as little as a glass of wine or beer a day — with cancer.

  • You can also do certain things to decrease your cancer risk, like getting more exercise.

It’s not every day that a group of the nation’s top cancer doctors asks people to curb their drinking.

In a statement released Tuesday, the American Society of Clinical Oncology outlined research tying alcohol to two types of cancer and told Americans to drink less.

“ASCO believes that a proactive stance by the Society to minimize excessive exposure to alcohol has important implications for cancer prevention,” the statement, which was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, said.
