The burst of intake of artificial drinks has been widespread worldwide over the last few decades and high-calorie drinks have been linked to increased risk of obesity, which are themselves recognized as the major risk factors for cancer.

A team of researchers in France wants to assess the link between high intake of sugary carbonated drinks and overall risk of cancer, as well as several types of cancers including breast, prostate and intestine.

They surveyed more than 100,000 adults with an average age of 42 years, among 79 percent of whom were women.

Participants, who followed up to a maximum of nine years, completed at least two dietary questionnaires confirmed online 24 hours, calculating daily intake of sugars and artificial sugary drinks and 100 percent fruit juice.

Researchers measured the daily intake of dietary drinks and compared them to cancer cases in participant medical records during the follow-up period.

They found that an increase of only 100 milligrams (ml) of sugary artificial drinks per day was associated with an 18 percent increase in cancer risk and 22 percent increase in breast cancer.

Report revealed that both sugary artificial drinks and fruit juice witnessed the same high risk of cancer.

During follow-up investigations, researchers found that 2,193 cases of cancer were diagnosed, the average diagnostic age was 59 years.

Research authors published in BMJ medical journals, stressed that their work is based solely on observation and can not create a cause of cancer prognosis.

“Massive research is thoroughly adding to the existing evidence that consumption of sugary drinks may be linked to increased risk of some cancers,” said Cancer Research UK senior statistician Graham Wheeler on the study.
