Study Links Soft Drinks to Pancreatic Cancer

Posted Feb 08 2010 11:51am
Drinking as little as two soft drinks a week appears to nearly double the risk of getting pancreatic canceraccording to a new study. ''People who drank two or more soft drinks a week had an 87% increased risk -- or nearly twice the risk -- of pancreatic cancer compared to individuals consuming no soft drinks," says study lead author Noel T. MuellerMPHa research associate at the Cancer Control Program at Georgetown University Medical CenterWashingtonD.C. The study is published in Cancer EpidemiologyBiomarkers& Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. The beverage industry took strong exception to the studycalling it flawed and pointing to other research that has found no association between soda consumption and pancreatic cancer.
