A study says that the consumption of sugary drinks will lead to cancer. If you are limiting yourself in sugary drinks consumption, then it is quite good and you will be away from cancer. The worrying factor is the consumption of sugary drinks across the globe came to a huge rise in the last few decades which is leading to the risk of obesity and this leads to cancer too. But research on sugary drinks and the risk of cancer is still limited.
A team of France researchers did an in-depth analysis and research between the consumption of sugary drinks (sugar-sweetened beverages and 100% fruit juices) along with the artificially sweetened beverages. The risk of cancers (all cancers) along with prostate, breast and bowel cancers are analyzed. Their findings are based on 101,257 healthy French adults. All the participants have been asked to complete two 24-hour online validated questionnaires.
The consumption of sugary drinks is calculated. The consumption is greater in men than in women. The results show that a 100 mL per day increase in the consumption of sugary drinks was associated with an 18% increased risk of overall cancer.
