Moderate Drinking may Lower Risk of Kidney Cancer

Moderate drinking may lower the risk of a type of kidney malignancy called renal cancer according to a study .

The researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston found that women and men who drank an average of one alcoholic beverage a day were about 30 percent less likely to develop renal cell cancer than non-drinkers. This reduced risk they found in people who drank beer, wine or liquor.

Jung Eun Lee and other researchers reviewed data from 12 studies that included more than 7,50,000 people in five countries.

The researchers, however, insisted that no smoking and maintaining a healthy weight are the best ways to protect from the disease.

They noted that alcohol raises the risk of cancers of the oral cavity, larynx, throat, esophagus, liver and breast, and possibly the colon and rectum and the best way to reduce the risk is to say no to smoking and maintaining a healthy weight, reported health portal Health Central.

"These healthy lifestyle choices (not smoking, weight control) should be encouraged, and doing so may also reduce the risk of many other cancers as well as cardiovascular disease," Lee said in the study that appeared in the May 16 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
