Does drinking 1 bottle of wine a week raise cancer risk as much as 10 cigarettes?

How many cigarettes are in a bottle of wine?

Drinking one 750-milliliter bottle of wine a week is associated with the same lifetime cancer risk as smoking five cigarettes a week for men, and 10 cigarettes for women, according to a new study published Thursday in the journal BMC Public Health.

While many people are aware that a link between cancer and tobacco has been well established over decades of scientific research, alcohol’s classification as a carcinogen isn’t as well understood by the public. In fact, a 2017 American Society of Clinical Oncology survey found that 70% of Americans didn’t know that drinking alcohol is a risk factor for cancer.
