Heavy Drinking and Cancer Linked at Cellular Level

Dienstag 4. Mai 2010 von htm

A study presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research identifies structures at the cellular level that appear to explain a link between heavy alcohol use and cancer, HealthDay News reported April 21.
Andrea Baccarelli, who heads a research center at the University of Milan, reported that a team of investigators found the connection in looking at telomeres — structures at the end of chromosomes that shorten as people age. In comparing DNA from a group of 59 heavy drinkers with 197 individuals who drank less, the researchers found that telomeres were considerably shorter in the heavy-drinking group.
