You may love to have a tin of pop. But researchers say that it’s not a good idea to be followed.

According to Reuters, not much evidence was found regarding cancers in gallbladder & liver. However, it might lead to obesity & consumption of elevated sugary substances leads to Type 2 diabetes.

The research surveyed drinking & the eating habits of more than 70,000 people for 13 years, whether eventually, they have been suffering from cancer or not.

“Consumption of soda is also associated with the risk of having biliary tract cancer’, says Susanna Larsson in a news channel.

When researchers confirmed, out of which 150 people suffer from cancer in the gallbladder or biliary tract during the study.

This percentage might seem you a diminished one. But, people who consume more than two soda drinks per day results in twice the risk of developing gallbladder cancer & 79 percent higher odds are for biliary cancer.

The current study is about, finding a link between sugar-sweetened beverages like soda & different types of cancer.

When answered, found participates were 61 years of old in average. Out of which, half of them were overweight & quarter percent were smokers.

However, it’s still under observation regarding the consumption of drinks like soda can cause cancer. But, as the researchers say, “Prevention is better than cure”.
