Infographics on alcohol consumption prevention (Spanish)

Cancer is now the second leading cause of death in the European Union (EU), where the number of cases of deaths are increasing. Cancer is a complex disease, influenced by environmental and genetic factors. It is also largely affected by the same behaviours as many other non-communicable diseases (NCDs): smoking, alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, and unhealthy diets.
Europe has the highest level of alcohol consumption in the world. 7 of the top 10 countries with the highest alcohol consumption are in the EU. Approximately 240,000 people died from alcohol in the EU in 2019, and 3 out of 10 alcohol-attributable deaths were due to cancer.

The Ministry of Health in Spain published a series of infographics on alcohol consumption prevention, showcasing data and information on prevention measures.
