Gizmodo reports Japanese researchers have found a link between lifetime drinking to an increased risk of cancer.
It's the latest bit of research to suggest that even light drinking over a lifetime can be bad for health.
The case-control study examined the medical records of 126,000 Japanese adults, half of whom had cancer.
Compared to abstainers, the authors found an increased risk of cancer among people who would be considered light to moderate drinkers.
Those who drank a standard drink a day were 5% more likely to develop cancer.
That was even after accounting for factors like smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, and other known cancer risk factors.
