The more soda you drink, the bigger your chance of cancer
The more sugar sweetened soft drinks and fruit juices you drink, the greater your risk of cancer. French epidemiologists, affiliated with the Sorbonne discovered this. Their study, involving more than one hundred thousand French internet users, appeared in BMJ.
The study participants drank relatively few soft drinks. The unsweetened fruit juices were the most popular in this research population.
Every 100 milliliters of juice or soft drinks per day increased the risk of cancer by 12-19 percent.
"Of note, 100% fruit juices were also associated with the risk of overall cancer in this study."
"If these results are replicated in further large-scale prospective studies and supported by mechanistic experimental data, and given the large consumption of sugary drinks in Western countries, these beverages would represent a modifiable risk factor for cancer prevention, beyond their well established impact on cardiometabolic health."
"These data support the relevance of existing nutritional recommendations to limit sugary drink consumption, including 100% fruit juice, as well as policy actions, such as taxation and marketing restrictions targeting sugary drinks, which might potentially contribute to the reduction of cancer incidence."
