Alcohol and cancer videos

For some cancers the combined effects of drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco greatly exceed the risk from either factor alone. Compare with non-smoking non drinkers, the approximate relative risks for developing mouth and throat cancers are up to 7 times greater for people who smoke tobacco, up to 6 times greater for those who drink alcohol, but more than 35 times greater for those who are regular, heavy users of both substances.

Combined effect of alcohol and smoking has been estimated to be responsible for more than 75% of cancer of the upper aerodigestive (throat, mouth etc) tract.
