Smoking and drinking increase your risk of getting cancer

Which is not to say that the Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer shouldn't share front doors with a bar.

Like the casual collusion of church-run Cajasur and communist-led Ayuntamiento de Córdoba in illegal construction (cue Don Camillo and Peppone turning smartly in their graves to prevent a carpark), this is one of those coincidences that revive one's faith in the ability of humans to find non-conflictive, albeit sometimes still fatal, resolutions to difficult discussions. Presumably upstairs pops down every now and again for a brandy and a cigar, while downstairs advises discreetly on where close to go for a chat about that nasty cough, but proselytising is forbidden. No one gets hurt and we all die in the end.

Cancer Research UK:

One study found that the risk of liver cancer was ten times greater in people who smoked tobacco and drank alcohol. And a Spanish team found that people who smoke and drink heavily could increase their risk of oesophageal cancer by up to 100 times. This problem is made even worse because heavy drinkers and smokers often have unhealthy diets.
