Switching to a small glass when enjoying a drink of wine can reduce your risk of cancer.

A daily glass of wine should have no more than 10g of alcohol for women, because drinking more increases your risk of breast cancer by 10pc.

Men who drink alcohol daily are increasing their risk of bowel cancer and they should have no more than three small drinks of less than 30g of alcohol.

Pouring generous measures at home means many of us are losing track of exactly how much we are drinking.
