Consuming sugary drinks once a day increases risk of liver cancer: Study

Even the use of sugary drinks once a day on a daily basis significantly increases the risk of liver cancer.

This warning was revealed in a new medical study in the United States.

The study, from several universities, including the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, examined data from more than 90,000 women aged 59 to 79.

The data were compiled after reviewing the health of these women for 19 years and aimed to look at a possible relationship between consumption of sugary beverages and the risk of liver cancer.

The study found that women who drank only once a day had a 73 percent higher risk of liver cancer than others.

According to research, women who drink more than one drink a day have a 78 percent increased risk of liver cancer.

It should be noted that liver cancer is the sixth most common type of cancer in the world.

Researchers say that replacing sugary drinks with water and tea or coffee can significantly reduce the risk of a disease like liver cancer.

Research has shown that sugary drinks increase the risk of liver cancer than the sugar present in them.

Excessive sugar consumption reduces people’s sensitivity to the blood sugar-controlling hormone insulin, increases body weight, and increases the amount of fat around the liver.

All these elements cause damage to liver health and are linked to the risk of cancer.

Researchers said that more research is needed to understand this relationship because it is not yet clear whether sugary drinks directly cause liver cancer.

But the researchers said the results indicated that minimal consumption of sugary beverages could reduce the risk of liver cancer.
