Dr. Chadi Nabhan welcomes Shaalan Beg, MD, MBA, FASCO, and Noelle K. LoConte, MD, FASCO, to delve into the contentious relationship between alcohol consumption and cancer. Drawing from their expertise and insight, they navigate the complexities of discerning causation from association in this context, shedding light on why a randomized, controlled trial might never conclusively prove a link. From deciphering the threshold of alcohol intake that elevates the risk of 7 types of cancer to addressing the challenge of convincing the public to heed these data, this episode explores the nuances of risk assessment and drinking in social situations, including medical conferences.
