Consumption of sugary drinks linked with cancer risk

WORLD OF BUZZ Consumption of sugary drinks linked with cancer risk

Published in the BMJ British medical journal, this study analysed data from 101,257 French adults - 21% of them men and 79% women - and assessed their intake or sugary drinks.

Researchers in France monitored participants' daily consumption of sugar and artificially sweetened beverages, as well as 100% fruit juices.

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%.

The researchers, from French Public Health Agency, and the Nutritional Epidemiology Research Team (EREN) in Bobigny, France, found that the link between sugary drinks and cancer held true even when a person's weight was taken into account.

But they said their findings showed an association and could not prove that sugary drinks definitely caused cancer.

"When the group of sugary drinks was split into 100% fruit juices and other sugary drinks, the consumption of both beverage types was associated with a higher risk of overall cancer", reads the study conclusion.

Those people who drank the most sugary drinks, at 185.8ml per day on average, and then consumed an extra 100ml per day, had a 30pc increased risk of all cancers.

A recent study made a shocking discovery that consuming sugary drinks could actually increase the risk of many types of cancers as well.

Scientists already know that sugary food and drink causes weight gain and that overweight and obese people have a greater risk of cancer.

Historically 100% fruit juices have been associated with a healthy diet.

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

Responding to the study, the American Beverage Association stressed the safety of sugary drinks.

He added: "Participants were followed on average for about five years, and 22 participants per 1,000 developed some form of cancer".

PARIS, July 11 ― Consumption of sugary drinks such as soda and fruit juice is linked to a higher risk of developing certain kinds of cancer, researchers reported today. The study didn't seek to understand the reason for the link, though the researchers speculated that sugar's effect on visceral fat, blood-sugar levels and inflammation may play a role. Over that time, almost 2,200 cases of cancer were diagnosed, including 693 breast cancers. Risk factors for cancer, such as age, sex, educational level, family history of cancer, smoking status and physical activity, were considered in the study. Of these, 693 were breast cancers, 291 were prostate cancer cases and 166 were colorectal cancers.

"Clearly there is more work to be done and measuring dietary intake is challenging - however, the message from the totality of evidence on excess sugar consumption and various health outcomes is clear - reducing the amount of sugar in our diet is extremely important". She was not involved in the current study.
