ALCOHOL INTAKE AFTER PROSTATE CANCER DIAGNOSIS AND RISK OF LETHAL PROSTATE CANCER AND ALL-CAUSE MORTALITY

Van Blarigan EL, Kenfield SA, Stampfer MJ, Giovannucci EL, Rimm E, Willett WC, Chan JM

 

INTRODUCTION

>2.7 million US men currently live with prostate cancer

Guidelines for cancer survivors recommend that men who choose to drink limit intake to ≤2 drinks/d

Hypothesis: Alcohol intake after diagnosis would not be associated with lethal prostate cancer, and would be associated with lower all-cause mortality
 

CONCLUSIONS

Alcohol after diagnosis is not associated with an increased risk of lethal prostate cancer or death.

Wine after diagnosis may lower risk of lethal prostate cancer and death.

The potential benefit of wine for men with prostate cancer merits further research.
