Call for cancer alert on alcohol

All alcoholic drinks should be labelled with warnings about the links between over-consumption and cancers, a report by a Seanad committee has said.

There should also be a campaign on the role alcohol plays in the development of some cancers, the Seanad Public Consultation Committee said.

The committee, which has just launched its report on lifestyle and cancer, also called for a national physical activity plan for all age groups, plus more bicycle lanes and walking paths.
