Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines provide adults, ages 25 to 65 who choose to drink, information on alcohol and related health risks so that they can make an informed choice about drinking.

By choosing to limit their alcohol consumption, adults can reduce their risk of short and long-term alcohol-related harms, such as injuries and certain chronic diseases. The Toronto Cancer Prevention Coalition Alcohol Working Group cites that according to the research, drinking any type of alcohol – beer, wine or spirits – raises your risk of cancer.
