A soft drink a day raises prostate cancer risk: study

Men who drink one normal-sized soft drink per day are at greater risk of getting more aggressive forms of prostate cancer, according to a Swedish study released Monday.

"Among the men who drank a lot of soft drinks or other drinks with added sugar, we saw an increased risk of prostate cancer of around 40 percent," said Isabel Drake, a PhD student at Lund University.

The study, to be published in the upcoming edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, followed over 8,000 men aged 45 to 73 for an average of 15 years.

Those who drank one 330-millilitre (11-fluid-ounce) soft drink a day were 40 percent more likely to develop more serious forms of prostate cancer that required treatment.

2. I'm not a doctor but...

I would encourage that trip to Jellyfinger. I had a childhood friend who started drinking sodas all day and landed in the hospital with diabetes. He spent the rest of his youth and probably adulthood giving himself insulin shots once or twice a day and perhaps even worse things happened if complications developed later in life.
