Sugary Drinks

According to Reuters, researchers have found a possible link between soda and other sugary drinks and a increased risk of rare forms of cancer.

Details of the Cancer Study

The Swedish study focused on the cause of biliary tract and gallbladder tumors, of which little is known. Researchers observed the behavior of around 70,000 people over 13 years to observe cancer diagnoses.

People who drank 2 or more sweet drinks had more than twice the risk of developing gallbladder tumors and 79 percent higher odds of getting biliary tract cancer.

The researchers were careful to point out that associate does not mean causation, but it does show a plausible link.
