How to live longer: Popular UK drink could ‘shorten chromosomes’ and cause many cancers

These types of cancer emerge from the tissues that line the organs and are medically referred to as carcinomas.

They make up about 85 percent of cancer in the UK, and can be broken down into three types:

  • Adenocarcinoma
  • Basal cell carcinoma
  • Squamous cell carcinoma.

An early report published in the journal of Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition and Metabolic Care listed several cancers linked with shorter telomere length.

The report stated: “Individuals with shorter telomeres seem to have a greater risk for development of lung, bladder, renal cell, gastrointestinal and head and neck cancers.”

Similar findings have been found for the risk of dementia.

The latest research found that drinking seven alcohol units per week was enough to increase the amount of iron in the basal ganglia.
