New research from Cancer Council Victoria and the University of Melbourne has concluded that the long-term consumption of sugary soft drinks dramatically increases cancer risk, regardless of weight. This suggests that even among people of a healthy weight, drinking a sugary beverage raises the likelihood of several types of cancer. This would also imply that cancer risk is not completely driven by obesity but in unhealthy food consumption.
Researchers concluded that drinking sugar-sweetened beverages increases a person’s risk of developing various forms of cancer.
These results were published in Public Health Nutrition.
