20. Be smart with your alcohol intake.
We already know that having a larger waistline can increase your cancer risk. There are plenty of alcoholic beverages that are high in calories and plenty that can be avoided by reading the labels before taking a sip. If your drink is mixed with soda, juice, or cream, chances are it’s loaded with empty calories. You can replace your soda with diet soda to reduce your calorie intake when having a mixed drink, or use diluted juice mixed with water instead.
The ethanol or alcohol in wine, liquor, and beer and what researchers believe increase cancer risks. While checking the label on the bottle, check the ethanol percentage or number as well, and you will find either alcohol by volume (ABV) percentage or an alcohol proof number. Beer, wine, and liquor contain about the same amount of alcohol per serving. It’s essential to keep track of how much you drink over time and how much you drink at one time. However, avoiding alcoholic beverages altogether is best.
