Does drinking alcohol increase the risk of cancer?

The WHO suggests cutting alcohol lowers cancer risks, but evidence is mixed. A recent paper found limited or inadequate evidence of reduced cancer risk with lower alcohol consumption, specifically for cancers like laryngeal, colorectal, and breast cancer, while some links to oral and esophageal cancer were noted. Despite some findings, significant scientific gaps remain, and further research is needed to establish clearer connections between alcohol reduction and cancer risk.

HPV vaccine prevents cervical cancer in women

A Scottish study found that the HPV vaccine is highly effective in preventing cervical cancer, with zero cases among women vaccinated at ages 12-13. The vaccine also significantly reduces cancer risk when given later, with three-dose protocols. The findings bolster the importance of early vaccination to combat HPV-related cancers.

COVID-19 vaccines do not cause turbo cancer

In the era of misinformation, the claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause “turbo cancer” is unsupported by scientific evidence and is likely a myth perpetuated by anti-vaccine proponents. COVID-19 vaccines are extensively tested, safe, and vital in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly for at-risk individuals like those with cancer (Approx. 83 words).
