6 on Health: Researchers say even light drinking can increase risk of breast cancer

The American Society of Clinical Oncology says that even light drinking can increase a woman's risk of breast cancer.

It can also increase the chances for a type of esophageal cancer.

Researchers reviewed previously published studies and found that five and a half percent of all new cancers and nearly 6 percent of all cancer deaths worldwide could be blamed on alcohol.

They also found that heavy drinkers face a much higher risk of mouth , throat cancer and liver cancers along with a slightly higher risk of colorectal cancers.

According to a doctor's group, you shouldn't drink if you want to reduce your cancer risk.
