Sugary Beverage Consumption Associated With Increased Risk of Cancer


Drinking sugary beverages such as soda and juice have been linked to an increased risk of weight gain, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.  According to a recent study, increasing consumption of sugary drinks may also increase the risk of cancer.





Researchers from the National Health and Medical Research
Institute at the Paris 13 University looked at data from the NutriNet Santé
study, which began in 2009 and includes 101,257 adults. Participants completed
five questionnaires at the beginning of the study that asked about sociodemographic
and lifestyle characteristics, dietary intakes, physical activity, and health
status. Weight was collected every six months. Participants filled out a 24-hour
dietary record every six months. Health events were recorded through a yearly
questionnaire.





The researchers found that a consuming as little as 3.3 ounces of sugary drinks per day was associated with an 18% increase in the risk of overall cancer and a 22% increase in the risk of breast cancer. This association was found for sugar sweetened beverages and 100% pure fruit juice. No association was found between the consumption of artificially sweetened beverages and cancer.





The study was conducted by researchers from the Ewha Womans
University Mokdong Hospital. It was published on July 10, 2019 in the journal BMJ.
