I switch it ... Low fiber diet: fiber help to absorb and excrete the toxins
Smoke: Nitrates
Alcohol

from information i gathered from many sources...
i would say within general (low) risk:
low fiber > significant alcohol > significant smoking

but please pay attention to "significant", dont get fooled..
