How should we talk about alcohol and risk?

“The overall absolute increase in cancer risk for one bottle of wine per week equals that of five (men) or ten cigarettes per week (women).” This was the headline finding of a study led by Theresa Hydes (University of Southampton, UK) recently published in BMC Public Health, which aimed to directly compare the carcinogenic risk of alcohol consumption with that of smoking cigarettes. The study, subtitled “how many cigarettes are there in a bottle of wine?”, proved divisive, with some commentators labelling it unhelpful, and others calling it innovative and important. The analysis, and the mixed manner in which it was received, offers an insight into an ongoing conversation about the population-level health risks of alcohol consumption, and how best to communicate them.
