London: Drinking, smoking and unhealthy diet have doubled mouth, throat and food pipe cancer cases in young people, experts have warned.Researchers at the Aberdeen University also found that cancers are becoming increasingly common among younger people.
"Our study aimed to determine whether smoking, alcohol consumption and low fruit and vegetable intake remained the most significant risk factors for UADT cancers in this age group, or whether other "novel" factors including genetics and infection could be relatively more important."The results of our study further emphasise that the message we need to be communicating to the public remains the same - that smoking, drinking and diet are the major triggers of these diseases at all ages," he said.
