Scientists from the University of Minnesota and the National University of Singapore have found drinking at least two sugary sodas a week may increase your chance of getting pancreatic cancer.
The new study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention shows the fizzy drinks could boost the risk of getting this type of cancer by as much as 87 percent.
Such findings are groundbreaking given that cancer of the pancreas is one of the deadliest diseases in adults.
Only about five percent of patients live five years or more after being diagnosed with the disease.
Researchers did not find a link between drinking juice and pancreatic cancer.
The study, conducted in Singapore, followed 60,524 Singapore Chinese men and women over the course of 14 years.
It was the first study to examine the link between soda, juice and pancreatic cancer in Asians. Their usually healthy diet is increasingly growing more similar to the West.
