Fruit juice is just another soda as study suggests cancer link

"A lot of the research on sugar-sweetened drinks and cancer has been tied to obesity", noted Colleen Doyle, managing director of nutrition and physical activity at the ACS.

Researches identified that even a 100ml increased intake of sugary beverages a day was linked to 18% higher chances of cancer and 22% increased risk of breast cancer.

Among women, researchers found a 22pc increased risk of breast cancer.

"What we observed was that the main driver of the association seems to be really the sugar contained in these sugary drinks", said Touvier, who is the research director of the Nutritional Epidemiology Research Team of the National Health and Medical Research Institute at the Paris 13 University.

According to New Straits Times, the study which was done in France found out that drinking sweet drinks like sodas and fruit juices is related to a higher chance of getting a few types of cancer. For the purposes of the study, any drink with at least 5% sugar is a "sugary drink".

The results showed that, on average, people consumed 92.9ml per day of sugary drinks or 100pc fruit juice, which contains naturally occurring sugar.

A study published earlier this year found that drinking two or more of any kind of artificially sweetened drink a day was linked to an increased risk of clot-based strokes, heart attacks and early death in women over 50.

It's always been known that sugary drinks help people pack on unwanted pounds.

The research, which looked at more than 100,000 French adults, links consumption of sugary drinks to an increased risk of some cancers.

Over that time, almost 2,200 cases of cancer were diagnosed, including 693 breast cancers.

Sugary drinks have increased in popularity all around the world and these drinks have already been linked to obesity.

The research, however, found no link between diet beverages and cancer, although the authors warned the finding should be interpreted with caution, because diet beverages had a relatively low consumption rate among the study participants.

"When the group of sugary drinks was split into 100% fruit juices and other sugary drinks, the consumption of both beverage types was associated with a higher risk of overall cancer", it says. But here's the more surprising part: so could fruit juices.

Speaking on behalf of the British Fruit Juice Association, registered dietitian Helen Bond said: "The findings of this observational study completely contradict previous clinical trials on 100% fruit juice which makes me suspect that participants were not correctly reporting their consumption of 100% fruit juice".

She added: "More research is needed to understand if there is a direct link between sugary drinks and cancer".

Responding to the study, the American Beverage Association stressed the safety of sugary drinks.

"The soft drinks industry recognises it has a role to play in helping to tackle obesity which is why we have led the way in calorie and sugar reduction".
