Consumption of sugar-sweetened and artificially sweetened soft drinks and risk of obesity-related cancers.

The odds of developing obesity-related cancers may be stacked against individuals who are avid consumers of sugar-sweetened beverages.

​This study examined the intake of sweetened beverages in relation to the development of obesity-related cancers. Researchers from Australia analyzed health data from more than 35,000 men and women aged 40-69 years. They tracked the participants beverage-consumption habits and medical information for 4 years. 

The research team noticed that individuals who drank generous amounts of sugar-sweetened beverages exhibited a significant increase in the risk of developing obesity-related cancers. This study adds to the growing body of evidence supporting a positive association between frequent consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and the odds of acquiring obesity-related cancers.
