US: Alcohol may lower non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk
According to a recently published study, people who drink alcohol may have a lower risk of developing a type of cancer which affects the lymphatic system known as non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
Although scientists know that alcohol consumption increases the risk of developing certain cancers, researchers from the National Institute of Health in Maryland found that the risk of NHL was about 27% lower for current drinkers than for non-drinkers, but the risk did not change with increasing alcohol consumption.
While the risk also did not change with the age individuals began drinking or the type of beverage, it did vary by NHL subtype, with the lowest risk recorded for Burkitt lymphoma.
The researchers conducted a pooled analysis combining original data from nine studies from the US, UK, Sweden and Italy, involving 15,000 individuals.
