Sugar-Sweetened Drinks May Boost Women

Postmenopausal women who drink beverages with added sugar may be more likely to develop cancer of the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus, according to a new study.


Researchers found the more sugar-sweetened beverages the women in their study drank, the higher their risk for developing estrogen-dependent endometrial cancer. And women who consumed the highest intake of sugar-sweetened beverages, about 60 servings a week, had a 78 percent increased risk for the cancer, compared with women who didn't drink sugar-sweetened beverages.


The results held after the researchers controlled for other factors that could affect the risk, such as exercise, diabetes, smoking and BMI, according to the study published today  in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
