Sugary Drinks Linked to Increase Cancer Risk: Study

WEB DESK: People who drink a daily glass of orange juice may be at greater risk of cancer than someone who avoids sugary drinks entirely, a new study suggests.

Each extra 100ml of squash, fizzy drinks or 100 per cent fruit juice a day was associated with an 18 per cent higher chance of being diagnosed with any kind of cancer, the research in French adults found.

This increased risk was also seen even when sugary drink consumption was broken down to look at 100 per cent fruit juices, the researchers from the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research (Inserm) found.

People who consumed a daily 150 ml glass of juice were on average 12 per cent more likely to be diagnosed with cancer during the study than the average juice drinker.
