Study finds consumption of sugary drinks linked with cancer risk

Consumption of sugary drinks has risen worldwide in the last few decades file

For those participants who drank an average of 92.9ml of fruit juice, or sugary drinks, a day, increasing this by just 100ml - so altogether less than a small 200ml glass - increased overall cancer risk by 18%.

Among women, a similar consumption level was tied to a 22% rise in breast cancer risk, the French research team found.

The investigators found no association between sugary drinks and prostate or colon cancers, but the authors stressed that too few people in the study developed these cancers to make this finding definitive.

Drinking large amounts of fruit juice may raise your risk of cancer, according to a big study which has found a link between the regular consumption of all kinds of sugary drinks and the likelihood of developing the disease.

On average, men consumed more sugary drinks than women - 90.3 ml daily compared to 74.6 ml.

Their intake of more than 3,000 different food and drink items was assessed at the start of the study and every six months, with each person completing at least two 24-hour dietary questionnaires.

The researchers tracked 97 beverages and 12 artificially sweetened ones, including carbonated ones, sports drinks, syrups and pure fruit juices.

Touvier suggested that people should stick to public health guidelines that recommend limiting sugary drinks to a maximum of one glass a day.

They say there are plausible biological mechanisms, such as the effect of sugar on the visceral fat stored around vital organs such as the liver and pancreas, blood sugar levels and inflammatory markers, all of which are linked to increased cancer risk.

The study uncovered links between the consumption of sugary drinks and the risk of cancer in general, and for breast cancer specifically.

The team said "being overweight and weight gain might not be the only drivers of the association between sugary drinks and the risk of cancer".

Almost 2,200 cases of cancer were diagnosed, with the average age at diagnosis being 59.

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

The authors warned that this finding should be interpreted with caution, as this type of beverage had a relatively low consumption among the study participants. The study is observational, meaning it's only pointing out the association, not explaining it or establishing causation, per the BBC.

She added: "More research is needed to understand if there is a direct link between sugary drinks and cancer".

A group representing the beverage industry said sugary drinks can still be a part of the average diet, however. Heller said. She noted that, for decades, these drinks have been linked with diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
