More cancer by the teaspoon

Sweet drinks may sour your health. Swedish scientists found that regularly downing sugar could lead to pancreatic cancer. When the researchers tracked the diets of more than 77,000 people for eight years, they determined that those who drank two or more soft drinks a day were 90 per cent more likely to develop the disease than those who had less. What’s more, the scientists also found that people who added a total of five teaspoons of sugar to coffee, tea or cereal daily were at a 70 per cent greater risk of pancreatic cancer.
