In all fairness, all the medical professionals in my family have always told me that binge drinking will definitely up the risk of cancer. One says they've seen too many patients who abuse alcohol and end up with pancreatic cancer (read here: a 6% five year survival rate = the deadliest type of cancer).

A rough-and-tumble life does catch up with you eventually, that's just common sense. This study only confirms what most healthcare providers already knew.

Tea blossoms.

Chinese tea makers take long cut tea leaves and certain flowers and tie them up into a little ball and dry it. When you add hot water (or probably ANY liquid) to said ball it "blooms" into what you see in the glasses.

In other words, they're probably drinking tea and this is just a stock photo.

Not long after informing you that scientists have initial data that yes, this thing they thought might happen does happen sometimes, . . . the article mentions that most people have a very robust system in place to take care of the related damage.

Except for a portion of Asiatic peoples. If you're a flushed, sweaty Asian drunk, all the rice, vegetables, and moderate meat intake in the world won't save you.

Professor Balbo pointed out that people have a highly effective natural repair mechanism for correcting the damage from DNA adducts.
Most people thus are unlikely to develop cancer from social drinking, although alcohol is associated with a risk of other health problems and accidents.
In addition, most people have an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase, which quickly converts acetaldehyde to acetate, a relatively harmless substance.

//film at 11


This just in, dying of cancer at 50 years old isn't exactly pleasant. Also, treatment for oral cancer, while life-saving, isn't an ocean cruise.
Lets use oral cancer as an example. Lets say you decide to undergo the chemotherapy and radiotherapy, so the cancer doesnt slowly kill you. Before radiotherapy can begin, you need to see a dentist to decide if any teeth in the field of radiation require extraction. There's a chance you could lose all your teeth prior to radiation or risk osteoradionecrosis.
Then it's decided whether you will be able to obtain nutrition orally or you will need a G-tube. You may be feeding yourself Ensure through a tube connected directly to your stomach. I guess you can still pour your precious alcohol through the tube though.
During radiotherapy, your mouth will go through a series of deleterious changes (severe xerostomia, mucositis) that will knock you on your ass. After completion of radiotherapy, you will have life long xerostomia that will make it impossible to swallow or even taste food. You will wake up in the middle of the night with your tongue glued to the roof of your mouth and you will be running for a bottle of water.
Oh yeah, and during all this, certain cancers require having chemo meds pushed through a central line that will make you vomit worse than any food poisoning or flu imaginable.
To ahead and joke about "life causing cancer". Seeing people suffer the effects of cancer ain't so funny.

However, about 30 per cent of people of Asian descent ― almost 1.6billion people ― have a variant of the alcohol dehydrogenase gene and are unable to metabolise alcohol to acetate.

Feh. I could have told you that. My dear dead dad was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and died in 2 months. The doctors said his heavy drinking was a factor, despite his having quit drinking c 1975. Between that and this one friend I have who I am sure I have never seen 100% sober at any time I thank Buddha, Zeus and God that I can drink in moderation. I don't care how much fun being drunk allegedly is, after watching what happened to Dad I want no part of it.

so 30 percent of Asian people who lack a certain enzyme thingy have an elevated risk of cancer from drinking.

duly noted.
 
2012-08-24 04:49:53 PM  
Acetaldehyde, the metabolic byproduct of ethanol, is the principle carcinogenic factor or drinking. Acetaldehyde has been classified as a carcinogen since what the 1930s and is without question the initial primary byproduct of ethanol metabolism. So yeah duh.
