Link Between Sugary Drinks and Cancer

A study recently published by The BMJ reports a possible association between higher consumption of sugary drinks and an increased risk of cancer. While cautious interpretation is needed, the findings add to a growing body of evidence indicating that limiting sugary drink consumption, together with taxation and marketing restrictions, might contribute to a reduction in cancer cases.

The results show that a 100-mL-per-day increase in consumption of sugary drinks was associated with an 18% increased risk of overall cancer and a 22% increased risk of breast cancer. These results need replication in other large-scale studies, say the authors.
