A study by Matilde Tuv has shown that a small glass of a sweet beverage per day (about 100 ml) will increase the risk of general cancer by 18% and 22% of the risk of breast cancer.
A study published in the specialized BMJ magazine has estimated more than 100,000 adults in France to be examples of the consumption of sweet drinks with an increased risk of suffering from certain types of cancer.
According to the author, quoted by CNN, the researchers noted that "the main driver of the association." [bebidas azucaradas – cáncer] It seems like sugar that contains these drinks. This is so, explains Touvier, because "high intake of sweet drinks is a risk factor for obesity, which in itself is a risk factor for several types of cancer."

The environment adds that the other possibility is that the supplements that contain these beverages, such as 4-methylimidazole (usually in caramel colored drinks), can play an important role in the formation of cancer.
Ian Johnson, a researcher at the Quadram Institute of Biocience who did not participate in the Touvier study, said in the Science Media Center that the "most surprising" is the negative impact of "fruit juices."
"It's surprising that the increased risk of developing cancer in the strongest consumers of sweet drinks was observed among those who take obviously natural fruit juices, which deserves more investigation."
