In western societies, casual consumption of alcohol during such outdoor activities as barbecuing and sunbathing is common. The current literature shows that alcohol drinkers have increased episodes of sunburn and a higher prevalence of skin cancer. Moreover, recent evidence suggests that the combination of subcarcinogenic (minimal) ultraviolet (UV) exposure with other behavioural, environmental and xenobiotic factors has resulted in increased incidents of skin‐related health problems that also… Expand

Ultraviolet Radiation and Basal Cell Carcinoma: An Environmental Perspective
  • Yan Teng, Yong Yu, +4 authors Yibin Fan
  • Medicine
  • Frontiers in Public Health
  • 2021
TLDR
This chapter follows the function of UVR in the onset and development of BCC, and describes the factors that influence BCC induced by UVR, and also reviews the recent advances of pathogenesis of BCC inducedBy UVR from the genetic and inflammatory aspects. Expand
Alcohol Consumption Decreases the Protection Efficiency of the Antioxidant Network and Increases the Risk of Sunburn in Human Skin
TLDR
A significant decrease in the carotenoid concentration in the skin and the minimal erythema dose after alcohol consumption was shown, but no significant decrease after a combined intake of alcohol and orange juice. Expand
An Epidemiological Review of Diet and Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma
TLDR
A narrative review to summarize recent epidemiologic studies of diet and melanoma based on published literature finds associations between polyunsaturated fatty acid, niacin/nicotinamide, folate, and vitamin D with melanoma remain controversial. Expand
Alcohol And Early-Onset Basal Cell Carcinoma In A Case-Control Study
Background Previous epidemiologic studies of overall alcohol intake and basal cell carcinoma (BCC) are inconsistent, with some evidence for differences by type of alcoholic beverage. While alcoholExpand
Alcohol consumption and risk of cutaneous basal cell carcinoma in women and men: 3 prospective cohort studies.
TLDR
Increased alcohol intake was associated with increased BCC risk in both women and men and the association remained consistent when the authors used alcohol intakes over different latency periods as exposures and over categories of sun exposure-related factors. Expand
Light alcohol drinking and the risk of cancer development: a controversial relationship.
TLDR
Light alcohol drinking was not associated with an increased risk of cancer occurrence, with the exception of breast and prostate cancer and melanoma, and a possible protective role of light alcohol consumption on the development of bladder, kidney and ovarian cancer and Non Hodgkin Lymphoma was shown. Expand
Intake of alcohol may modify the risk for non-melanoma skin cancer: results of a large Danish prospective cohort study.
TLDR
It is indicated that alcohol intake may increase the risk for BCC, but the relations seemed to depend on beverage type, possibly because of the limited number of cases. Expand
Alcohol consumption and risk of cutaneous basal cell carcinoma in women and men : 3 prospective cohort studies 1 , 2
Background: Alcohol consumption has been associated with an increased prevalence of sunburn, which is an established skin cancer risk factor. Objective: We investigated whether alcohol consumption isExpand
The effects of alcohol and illicit drug use on the skin
TLDR
Dermatologists should be aware of hepatotoxic medications that are commonly prescribed for skin diseases so as to avoid initiating hepatoxicity in patients who use alcohol and illicit drug use. Expand
Alcoholic drinks and skin cancer – boozing on the beach and beyond
TLDR
From a behavioural point of view, it would seem quite plausi- ble that, on average, frequent drinkers are more often affected by skin cancer than others. Expand

The epidemiology of UV induced skin cancer.
TLDR
The epidemiological data suggest that in implementing sun protection an increase in intermittency of exposure should be avoided, that sun protection will have the greatest impact if achieved as early as possible in life and that it will probably have an impact later in life, especially in those who had high childhood exposure to solar radiation. Expand
Arsenite is a cocarcinogen with solar ultraviolet radiation for mouse skin: an animal model for arsenic carcinogenesis.
TLDR
The results suggest that the failure to find an animal model for arsenic carcinogenesis is because arsenite is not a carcinogen per se, but rather acts as an enhancing agent (cocarcinogen) with a genotoxic partner. Expand

TLDR
The skin is the site of significant absorption of environmental pollutants, and in the case of chloroform, the percutaneous absorption is equivalent to the respiratory uptake, emphasizing how important it is to recognize skin absorption in toxicologic exposures. Expand
Alcohol intake-associated skin and mucosal cancer.
TLDR
The epidemiological data regarding skin and mucosal cancers, the clinical and biological behavior of skinand mucosal cancer in alcoholics, and the possible mechanisms through which alcohol is cancerogenic are reviewed. Expand
Alcohol Consumption and the Risk of Cancer: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
A combined analysis of more than 200 studies assessing the link between alcohol and various types of cancer sought to investigate this association in more detail found that alcohol most strongly increased the risks for cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, esophagus, and larynx. Expand
Alcohol-induced breast cancer: a proposed mechanism.
TLDR
The data obtained suggests that accumulation of iron coupled with diminished antioxidant defenses in breast tissue with advancing age provide additional support for this hypothesis because both result in elevated ROS damage that may exacerbate the risk for ROS-induced breast cancer. Expand
Photocarcinogenesis: UVA vs. UVB Radiation
TLDR
Experiments have shown that UVA1 (340–400 nm) exposure induces SCC largely without the characteristic point mutations in p53, and much of the mutagenic and carcinogenic action of UVA radiation appears to be mediated through reactive oxygen species (ROS). Expand

Intake of alcohol and alcoholic beverages and the risk of basal cell carcinoma of the skin.
TLDR
Alcohol intake was associated with BCC, but the association appeared to be different for each type of alcoholic beverage, and red wine appeared to have an inverse association in women but not in men. Expand

TLDR
The demonstration of such adducts in zone 3 hepatocytes in alcoholics with an early phase of histological liver damage indicates that adduct formation may have an important role in the sequence of events leading to alcoholic liver disease. Expand
