One Fizzy Drink A Day Increases Your Chances Of Prostate Cancer

Drinking only one fizzy soda drink per day can heighten the chances of prostate cancer in men by approximately 40% according to a Swedish study reported in the Daily Telegraph this week. Something to ponder when next visiting the vending machines perhaps?Prostate Cancer

The research looked at over 8,000 men aged between 45 and 73 over a 15 year time period. Each of the participants were in good health when the study started and were all surveyed as to their dietary habits. Those with a tendency to favour fizzy sweet drinks were more likely to have been diagnosed with prostate cancer by the end of the study.

“Among the men who drank a lot of soft drinks, we saw an increased risk of prostate cancer of around 40 per cent.”, states Isabel Drake, a researcher at Lund University.

For fans of fizzy drinks it is worth pointing out that whilst the findings confirm that diet is important for health maintenance, the identification of one food type in causing illness is probably not entirely fair. 

There is no doubt that diet is important and that your risk factors will decrease if you favour green vegetables over pop and biscuits. However genetics also has a large part to play in a disease which is believed to be present in 50-70% of males over the age of 70.
