Research shows that drinking even a small amount of alcohol increases your chances of developing oral, breast and liver cancers. If you drink alcohol, stick to the recommended serving sizes in this guide.

Keep your cancer risk in check by limiting yourself to no more than one drink per day for women and no more than two drinks per day for men. It’s actually better if you can avoid alcohol altogether.

Use this journal to record the number of alcoholic drinks you have each week.
