The relationship between sugar and human health is complex, but a new study has revealed some new details about the overconsumption of sugary drinks.
Research has shown that drinking 2 or more sodas (which are high in sugar) per day may increase the risk of death from obesity-related cancers.
The research, published in the journal Cancer, Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention, sheds light on the relationship between sugary drinks and the risk of death from various types of cancer.
According to reports, the study used data from 900,000 people who were completely cancer-free before they became addicted to soda drinks in 1983, but when the data was collected from these people in 2016, 135,000 and 100,000 of them were cancer-free. People died of cancer due to the habit of drinking soda drinks.
The study found that among men and women who drank two or more 355ml sugar-sweetened beverages per day, there was a 5% increased risk of death from all types of cancer, but not all cancers, particularly obesity-related cancers. .
The researchers concluded that the high rate of death from excessive consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages was partly linked to obesity.
