News24xx.com - Researchers found that just a 100 ml increase of sugary drinks each day was associated with an 18% increased risk of cancer, and with a 22% increase in breast cancer. It was also found that both sugar-sweetened drinks and fruit juices saw a similar higher risk association.
Findings after a follow-up revealed that 2,193 cases of cancer were diagnosed, with the average age of diagnosis at 59 years old.
According to the authors of the study, their work was based on observation and, therefore, could not establish the cause of cancer prognoses. Based on their findings, the authors suggested that taxing sugary products could significantly make an impact on cancer rates.
