Popular UK drink is a 'known' cause of cancer - 'large proportion' of Britons at risk

  Popular UK drink is a 'known' cause of cancer - 'large proportion' of Britons at risk CANCER will strike one in two people during their lifetime but you can modify your risk of the potentially deadly disease. Curbing a popular UK drink that's a "known" cause of cancer is a good place to start.Alcohol, which the UK population drinks "substantially" more of today than they did 50 years ago, is a "known" cause of cancer, warns Cancer Research UK.

The four most common cancers in the UK are breast, bowel, prostate, and lung cancer. Of these, breast cancer is the most prevalent, accounting for 15 percent of all new cases in men and women between 2016-2018. As numbers continue to remain high, it becomes evermore crucial to know how to prevent the disease and reduce one's risk of the condition. This could include cutting out some carbohydrates if a French recent study is to suggest.

The research found carbohydrates could increase the risk of breast cancer by up to 20 percent.

French scientists found foods containing refined grains such as white rice, bread, and flour were found to increase the likelihood of cancer alongside other common carbohydrates such as potatoes.

Vitamin deficiency seen in 1 in 10 older Britons can cause 'DNA damage and lead to cancer'

  Vitamin deficiency seen in 1 in 10 older Britons can cause 'DNA damage and lead to cancer' CANCER will strike one in two people during their lifetime, despite ongoing efforts to eradicate it. You can modify your risk of the potentially deadly disease. Evidence suggests a common vitamin deficiency can cause "DNA damage and lead to cancer" - are you deficient?Cancer statistics make for grim reading. Hundreds of thousands of Britons are diagnosed with cancer every year, with more than a third diagnosed after being rushed to hospital, a recent UCL study found. While cancer seems omnipotent, there are proven ways to modify your risk.

Other foods which increased the risk included crackers, desserts, pastries, and cereals.

This wasn't the end of the list of foods identified by the researchers.

They also discovered fruit juices, sugar-sweetened beverages, and unhealthy plant-based diets increased the risk of cancer too.

Speaking about the research Sanam Shah of Centre for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health who published the study said: "These findings highlight that increasing the consumption of healthy plant foods and decreasing the consumption of less healthy plant foods and animal foods might help prevent all types of breast cancer."

Sean Lock: 'Finger clubbing' and 'coughing up blood' Signs of the cancer that killed comic

  Sean Lock: 'Finger clubbing' and 'coughing up blood' Signs of the cancer that killed comic THE DEATH of beloved comic Sean Lock was a shock to many. Exactly one year on from his passing, here we examine the type of cancer the star suffered from and what the critical signs and symptoms are.The star, who appeared on Channel 4 show 8 Out of 10 Cats from 2005 to 2015, and on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown from 2012 until his death in 2021, passed away after a private battle with lung cancer. At the time, his close friend and fellow comic Bill Bailey confirmed the news, explaining that the star had first been diagnosed with the disease "a few years ago".

The study concluded cutting out some everyday carbohydrates could reduce the risk of breast cancer.

However, it is important not to eat a carbohydrate free diet.

Harvard University and most major health resources say they are essential for a healthy diet as they're an important source of energy and provide the body with the glucose it needs to operate effectively.

While, based on this study, the removal of said foods could render a diet almost with carbohydrates, Shah says more research is required to assess the link between diet and cancer risk.
