Alcohol and head and neck cancer risk in a prospective study
advance online publication 27 March 2007;
We investigated the relation between head and neck cancer risk and alcohol consumption in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study.
Among male and female alcohol drinkers, we observed a significant dose-response relationship between alcohol consumption and risk.
In summary, drinking >3 alcoholic beverages per day was associated with increased risk in men and women, but consumption of up to one drink per day may be associated with reduced risk relative to non-drinking.
