Drinking Sugary Drinks Can Increase Your Cancer Risk Up to 18%

Drinking Sugary Drinks Can Increase Your Cancer Risk Up to 18%”

They found that a 100ml increase in sugary drink consumption was associated with an 18% increased risk of overall cancer and a 22% increased risk of breast cancer.

A recent study made a shocking discovery that consuming sugary drinks could actually increase the risk of many types of cancers as well.

For the new study, the research team looked at 101,257 healthy French adults - 79% women and 21% men who participated in the ongoing French NutriNet-Santé study.

The participants, who were followed for a maximum of nine years, completed at least two 24-hour online validated dietary questionnaires, calculating their daily consumption of sugar and artificially sweetened beverages as well as 100 per cent fruit juices.

The results showed that, on average, people consumed 92.9ml per day of sugary drinks or 100pc fruit juice, which contains naturally occurring sugar.

For every extra 100ml per day consumed on top of this, a person's cancer risk increased by 18pc for all cancers and, among women, by 22pc for breast cancer.

The study found that drinking just a small glass of a sugary drink per day, 100 milliliters, or about a third of a typical can of soda, could increase your overall cancer risk by 18 percent, and could increase the risk for breast cancer by 22 percent.

The study, carried out in France, is the first substantial piece of research to find a specific association between sugar and cancer.

Researchers measured the daily intakes of sugary drinks against those of diet beverages and compared them to cancer cases in participants' medical records during the follow-up period.

Sugary drinks have increased in popularity all around the world and these drinks have already been linked to obesity.

The research spanned a five-year period, starting when the participants were aged 42 on average. Brown suggested further research was needed before we know.

He said: "Participants were followed on average for about five years, and 22 participants per 1,000 developed some form of cancer".

PARIS, July 11 ― Consumption of sugary drinks such as soda and fruit juice is linked to a higher risk of developing certain kinds of cancer, researchers reported today.

The researchers concluded: "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".

"For now, we recommend not drinking sugary drinks to reduce your risk of weight gain and therefore cancer". The study didn't seek to understand the reason for the link, though the researchers speculated that sugar's effect on visceral fat, blood-sugar levels and inflammation may play a role.

Responding to the study, the American Beverage Association stressed the safety of sugary drinks.

He added: "Soft drinks are safe to consume as part of a balanced diet".
