For a quite a number of years, liquor has been known not only to bring destructive intoxication and addiction upon its patrons, but also as deterrent to a healthy lifestyle. But as a potential weapon against cancer? Sounds controversial.

Rumors that single malt whiskey may be a tool to combat cancer have begun circulating recently. Whether it actually holds any water has yet to be proven. According to one ofrepparttar 150700 theory’s proponents, a consultant torepparttar 150701 whiskey industry, Dr. Jim Swan,repparttar 150702 antioxidants present in whiskey, particularly ellagic acid, can reducerepparttar 150703 risk of developing cancer, since this acid fightsrepparttar 150704 unstable atoms that aid in rapid cell replication. He added thatrepparttar 150705 more cells were produced,repparttar 150706 more likely that rogue cancer cells will be born. “Whiskey can protect you from cancer and science proves it,” he said, speaking atrepparttar 150707 EuroMedLab 2005 conference in Glasgow. Dr Swan explained that ellagic acid, which is in greater concentration in whiskey than in red wine, breaks downrepparttar 150708 harmful free radicals present in our body.

However, Cancer Research UK remains unconvinced. The agency has raised concerns that what Dr Swan and his supporters are pushing might mislead consumers into drinking excessive amounts of whiskey just to avoid cancer. Cancer Research noted that liquor intake can eventually lead to certain kinds of cancer, such as those inrepparttar 150709 esophagus, throat, mouth, bowel and liver. Dr Swan’s idea that whiskey can prevent cancer also received criticism, owing mostly to an absence of population data supporting them. Contrariwise, according torepparttar 150710 agency’s head of cancer information Lesley Walker, there exists evidence that high alcohol consumption does increase cancer risks. Ms Walker noted that while ellagic acid is a formidable antioxidant and may greatly aid inrepparttar 150711 fight against cancer, its presence in whiskey is not reason enough for people to begin drinking up, especially as ellagic acid can also be found in certain fruits.
