The Link Between Pancreatic Cancer and Sugary Pop


A 14-year-long survey made by experts in Singapore studying the effects of sugar has been released. 60,500 people were involved in the study, and has shown that people who consume soda pop on a weekly basis increased their chances of cancer by 87%.

Pancreatic cancer is usually rare, but it affects approximately 7,600 people in the UK every year. Only 2-3% of patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will be fortunate to continue living for another five years.

Dr. Mark Pereira of the University of Minnesota is heading the study and said: "The high levels of sugar in soft drinks may be increasing the level of insulin in the body, which we think contributes to pancreatic cancer cell growth."

  interesting story.  
Sorry but it was a study, not a survey. There´s a difference.

Also the first paragraph reads terribly and where you say "two to 3%", pick one way of writing it and stick with it.

Sorry. Good story otherwise :-)

Good story.... but you write "Findings proved that people, who consumed soda pops on a weekly basis, increased their chances of cancer by 87%." the study didn´t prove anything, the study identified a possible correlation between soda consumption and pancreatic cancer.
As the study points to soda and not other sugar containing products such as fruit juice i assume that the rule doesn´t apply to all beverages containing sugar, which means it´s just as likely that the filtered water was the cause or the carbon dioxide used to carbonate the soda or the artificial flavors used.
Also as the source point out UK cancer research believes the evidence is inconsistent saying "Although this study included a lot of people, very few of them developed pancreatic cancer so it is difficult to know if soft drinks do increase the risk of pancreatic cancer, or whether the results are just down to chance." also "Also, people who drank lots of fizzy drinks in this study were more likely to be unhealthy in other ways, like smoking, eating more calories, and being less active, so it is difficult to separate the effects of all of these things."

  Liquid Death  
That´s what this CRAP is. It´s nothing but artificially flavored high fructose water. Just give it up for a year, and then see if you can even stand drinking this crap ever again. It nauseates me now. I´ve been off the crap for about 20 years now and don´t miss is a bit.

  Thank you @Shifty  
I think you may be right, in some ways as far as the diet on a whole.

I have always worried about the sugar itself, I am a dreadful sugar addict, and I mean big time, I was going crazy for chocolate here yesterday and it is one of the worst things I can eat but I had to get some I swear I would have kicked the shop door down. Now I know what an addict is! :(

  Uh oh  
Lets put warning labels all over soda cans and tax it like a drug, because we all know we need more nanny laws!

I don´t drink carbonated sugar drinks any more. I drink mainly water and coffee.

is my main drink with the dreaded sugar.

This information has opened my eyes, so I will be talking to my daughter!

I used to drink a pop called quatro if I remember rightly, it was a funny green colour and I loved loved it. They suddenly took it off the market I never did find out why. What I am getting at is we all do things that is not good for us but to be aware of it is important don´t you think? To at least we have a choice.

  well, if it affects 76,000 people in the UK  
each year, I´m not going to worry about it because I live in the US.

I dropped all carbonated beverages along with coffee and tea.
Replaced them with 50/50 fruit/veg juice, water, guarna powder & kola nut powder. Lost a whole heap of weight, felt better and had more energy.
Point being, their are alternatives that are just as effective if not more then tea/coffee for energy.
