Trends observed in Belarus during 1970-1999 and related with mortality of different-type cancer, e.g. breast cancer in women, cancer of the mouth, pharynx, esophagus and stomach, were analyzed versus trends related with the per-capita consumption of various beverages by using the time-series analysis. The results reveal a positive and statistically significant effect of the per-capita vodka consumption on the cancer mortality rate. According to the analysis, a 1% increase in the per-capita vodka consumption entails a 0.58% growth in the breast cancer mortality rate and a 0.66% growth in the esophagus cancer mortality rate. The case study is another solid proof to the fact that a substantial share of breast cancers and of esophageal cancers are brought about by strong beverages.
