Experts have known since 1987 that alcohol can cause cancer, but the connection between the two is often unknown, or ignored. Research in Europe has shown that 1 in 10 Europeans do not know about the connection, and that 1 in 5 do not believe that there is a connection between cancer and the drinks that millions of us enjoy every week.

This website was designed to raise awareness about the dangers of alcohol and to become a resourceful hub for everyone who wants to do the best they can to protect themselves and their families from cancer.
