Too Many Soft Drinks Could Increase Risk of Pancreatic Cancer

Too many soft drinks and other sugary foods could mean an increased risk of pancreatic cancer.

Researchers followed the dietary habits of 80,000 healthy adults from 1997 to 2005.

Those who drank two or more sugary sodas a day ran a 90 percent higher risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

Those who added sugar to food or drinks, like coffee, at least five times a day had a 70 percent greater risk.

Pancreatic cancer occurs when the pancreas produces too much insulin.
