A Sour Side of Sugary Beverages

Regular consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages was associated with almost 80% higher risk of type 1 estrogen-dependent endometrial cancer compared to those who consumed none. This was independent of body mass index, physical activity, diabetes and cigarette smoking. These significant findings came from analysis of 23,039 postmenopausal participants in the Iowa Women's Health Study.

PositiveTip: Remember, sugar sweetened beverages are not a necessary part of a good diet. Enjoy water, natures refreshing beverage!
