A study by a team working at St George's Hospital in London has shown an increase in the number of breast cancer cases alongside a 40% jump in the amount of alcohol consumed by women.
The results, published in Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention, revealed 4,198 cases of breast cancer in women in London in 2005, in comparison to 3,968 in 1995. Professor Mokbel, who works at St George's and the London Breast Institute, said: "We have no doubt that alcohol is one of the most important risk factors relating to our lifestyle."
