There are very few large scale studies that have examined the association of prostate cancer with alcohol and other beverages.
This relationship was examined in a case-control study conducted in 3 geographical areas of Canada (Metropolitan Toronto (Ontario), Montreal (Quebec), and Vancouver (British Columbia) ] with 617 incident cases and 637 population controls.
Complete history of beverage intake was assessed by a personal interview with reference to a I-year period prior to diagnosis or interview.
In age-and energy-adjusted models for all centers combined, the odds ratio (OR) for the highest quintile of total alcohol intake was 0.89.
For alcoholic beverages separately, it was 0.68 for the highest tertile of beer, 1.12 for wine and 0.86 for liquor.
The decreasing trend was significant for beer intake.
The results were only significant for British Columbia out of all the 3 centers studied.
Whereas coffee and cola intake was not associated with prostate cancer, a decrease in risk was observed with tea intake of more than 500 g per day (OR 0.70).
Our results do not support a positive association between total alcohol, coffee and prostate cancer.
