ALCOHOL AWARENESS WEEK
Alcohol Awareness Week, run by Alcohol Change UK, from 11th to 17th November is a chance for the UK to get thinking about drinking. It is a week of awareness-raising and campaigning for change. This year the theme is Alcohol and me, encouraging people to test their knowledge around drinking guidelines and health impacts associated with drinking.
Here at the Mouth Cancer Foundation we support limiting alcohol intake as there is an increased risk between drinking and mouth cancer. Drinking to excess can increase the risk of mouth cancer by four times. Those who smoke and drink are up to 30 times more likely to develop mouth cancer.
