Sugar-laden Sodas Associated with Pancreatic Cancer

PositiveTips

The Singapore Chinese Health Study followed 60,524 adults for up to 14 years to examine the possible link between deadly pancreatic cancer and sugar-laden soda consumption. Persons consuming two or more soft drinks per week were 87% more likely to develop pancreatic cancer compared to those who did not drink soft drinks. These results were adjusted for known confounders such as smoking. No statistically significant association was found between fruit juice consumption and pancreatic cancer.

PositiveTip: Soft drinks contribute nothing but calories to our diet--and may pose some serious risks such as a deadly cancer. Water still remains the liquid of choice for robust health!
