Sugary drinks linked to cancer

Health Watch

WASHINGTON: A new medical study suggests a link between sugary drinks and cancer in women.
The Washington University School of Medicine conducted a study involving more than 100,000 women over nearly 25 years.
Researchers found that compared with women who drank less than one 8-ounce serving per week of sugar-sweetened beverages, those who drank two or more per day had over twice the risk of developing early-onset colorectal cancer.
Rates of colorectal cancer in people under 50 have increased sharply in recent years. –
