Date:10/29/2007

Scientists working with the WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have now added breast cancer and colorectal cancer to the list of pernicious cancers where alcohol is a contributing cause. Even moderate consumption can pose a threatfor instance, just one drink a day increases a womans breast cancer risk by 7%-10%.

In light of this disturbing trend, the Toronto Cancer Prevention Coalition and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) will bring the two Canadian IARC contributors together with cancer experts from Cancer Care Ontario, the Canadian Cancer Society and representatives of over 50 organizations for a half day seminar on Alcohol, Cancer and Public Policy, to address the recent research and emerging prevention opportunities. Experts and stakeholders representing liquor control agencies, alcohol retailers, public health, Ministry of Health Promotion, and many NGOs are expected.
