Could Your Daily Orange Juice Be Increasing Your Cancer Risk?
« on: December 05, 2019, 02:23:36 pm »
Daily consumption of less than half a cup of sugary beverages—even fruit juice—may be a risk factor for several kinds of cancer, according to a sizeable new study published this week in the British Medical Journal.

In an observational study involving over 100,000 initially healthy French adults, the majority of them women, the researchers found that an increase of 100 milliliters (about 3½ ounces, or less than a third of a 12-ounce soda) in sugary-drink intake was statistically correlated with a 22% greater chance of developing breast cancer and an 18% greater chance of developing overall cancer. The correlation was not apparent for prostate and colorectal cancers, however.

Although some earlier, smaller studies had suggested such a link, the evidence hadn’t been strong. While an observational study cannot determine causality, the researchers note that there are several reasons to believe that a high-sugar diet could increase cancer risk—for example, the fact that a high-sugar diet can contribute to obesity, itself a risk factor for cancer. But they believe that other biological mechanisms may also be at play.

Come on.  :P :P :P Next you will tell me not to drink my coffee in the morning. Literally you can find a report how everything on the planet can kill you. Thanks but no thanks. I'll stick with my OJ.
