Drinking Sugared Soft Drinks May Develop Pancreatic Cancer

A study out of Singapore has found a link between drinking sugared soft drinks and pancreatic cancer. The study was led by the University of Minnesota, which followed some 60,000 people in Singapore for 14 years.

According to a new article in the Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention journal, American researchers found that if a person has more than two soft drinks a week, he will have an 87 per cent higher chance of getting pancreatic cancer, Channel News Asia reports.

Senior author Dr Mark Pereira, associate professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and colleagues, followed over 60,000 Singapore-based men and women for over a decade and found that compared to those who did not consume soft drinks, those who had two or more a week had two times the risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

They found no such link for fruit juice consumption. Pereira told the press that while the population they studied was based in Singapore, the results were likely to be equally applicable to the US and other developed countries:

"Singapore is a wealthy country with excellent health care. Favorite pastimes are eating and shopping, so the findings should apply to other western countries," said Pereira, Medical News Today reports.
