sports drinks

sweet tea

sweetened coffee drinks

sweetened water

any other beverages with sucrose or high-fructose corn syrup added to enhance sweetness.

6 in 10 young people aged 2 to 19 years and 5 in 10 adults consume a sugary drink on a given day.

Adults who consume sugary drinks incur an increased risk of cancer.

Assessed 101,257 participants from the French 2009-2017: an analysis of 2,193 cases indicated that sugary drink consumption was significantly linked with the increased overall risk of cancer.

A specific sub analyses suggest the consumption of 100% fruit juices was notably linked with an increased risk of cancer.

However, artificially sweetened beverages were not linked to an increased risk of cancer.

This observational study based on a large prospective cohort suggest that a higher consumption of sugary drinks is associated with the risk of overall cancer and breast cancer.

100% fruit juices were also associated with the risk of overall cancer in this study.

Nutritional recommendations to limit sugary drink consumption, including 100% fruit juice, which might potentially contribute to the reduction of cancer incidence.

Increasing total sugary beverage intake by more than half a serving daily over a four-year period increased T2D risk by 16% in the subsequent four years.

In a meta-analysis of 173,753 participant’s sugar intake in the form of sugar-sweetened beverages were associated with a greater risk for coronary heart disease, with a 16% relative risk increase of coronary heart disease for each additional daily serving.

In the prospective study of the Framingham Heart Study Offspring cohort, intake of sugar-sweetened beverages was not associated with increased Cardiovascular disease.

Consumption of total, sugar-sweetened, and artificially sweetened soft drinks is linked to all-cause mortality, according to the findings of a recent study published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Higher all-cause mortality among participants who consumed two or more soft drink glasses per day.

In 98,786 post menopausal women followed for a median of 20.9 years those consuming three servings or less of sugar sweetened beverages per month compared to those consuming one or more servings per day had a higher rate of liver cancer, 18 versus 10.3/100,000 persons and chronic disease mortality.
