Link Found Between Daily Soft Drink Consumption And Pancreatic Cancer

February 8, 2010: 09:37 AM EST
Increased insulin levels in the body from consuming sugary soft drinks seems to contribute to pancreatic cancer cell growth, Singapore researchers have found. In fact, consuming two or more soft drinks a week was linked to a near doubling of the risk of pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is rare, but deadly, with a 95 percent mortality rate five years after diagnosis. The study looked at health data on 60,524 men and women over 14 years. Scientists cautioned that the finding was based on relatively small numbers. No association was found between fruit juice consumption and pancreatic cancer.
