Dear Sir,

There is no evidence that listermint can cause any type of tumour. Excessive alcohol intake can cause liver cirrhosis and liver cancer. However, if you say that your wife was diagnosed with lymphoma, it's not likely related with alcohol intake or listermint. The cause of lymphoma is unknown: none of the factors that you mentioned, are known to cause lymphoma. Hope to have answered your query.
