Soft drinks increase risk of prostate cancer in men
Men who drink fizzy drinks aren't just ruining their teeth but could also be at risk of aggressive prostate cancer.
London: Men who drink fizzy drinks are not just ruining their teeth but could also be at risk of aggressive prostate cancer, the Daily Mail reported on Tuesday. A Swedish study has found just one soft drink a day could increase the risk of developing more serious forms of the cancer by 40 percent.
Experts at Lund University also found those who ate a carbohydrate diet heavy in rice and pasta increased their risk of getting milder forms of prostate cancer, which often required no treatment, by 31 percent. And eating lots of sugary breakfast cereals raised the incidence of milder forms of the cancer to 38 percent
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men after lung disease. The study examined more than 8,000 men aged between 45 and73 for an average of 15 years.
