Soda Linked to Pancreatic Cancer, FML

2 or More Soft Drinks per Week May Increase Risk of Pancreatic Cancer

Along with tanning beds and your commitment-phobic friend with benefits, soft drinks might be joining the blacklist of guilty pleasures that are harmful to your health. According to a recent study, people who drink two or more soft drinks (defined as sugar-sweetened carbonated beverages) a week may nearly double their risk of developing pancreatic cancer, a rare but deadly form of cancer with an average five-year survival rate of only five percent.

The high levels of sugar found in non-diet sodas might be a cause. Our expert, Los Angeles internist Dr. Andrea Ruman, explains that consuming high concentrations of sugar can increase the level of insulin in the body, exposing the pancreas to high levels of the hormone. This is dangerous because, as Dr. Ruman explains, "Research has shown that insulin may promote pancreatic cancer cell growth." There is still more work that needs to be done, however, to understand the potential link between high consumption levels of sugary sodas and pancreatic cancer.

The study didn't detail whether high consumption levels of other sugary indulgences, such as candy and baked goods, could increase your risk of pancreatic cancer. But Dr. Ruman thinks that it might: "I would hypothesize that any food high in sugar that contributes to weight gain, high insulin levels and diabetes might also indirectly contribute to the development of pancreatic cancer. The problem is trying to design a good experiment in which to prove cause and effect."

Indeed, it is difficult to prove that there is a causal relationship between consuming sugary foods and pancreatic cancer. In the case of this study, researchers recognize that soft drink consumption may be associated with other harmful habits, such as smoking cigarettes and eating red meat, and thus it remains unclear whether there is a direct causal relationship between drinking soda and pancreatic cancer.

But, as any woman who has braved the "Freshman 15" and lived to tell the tale can attest, consuming sugary junk is not without its consequences.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

My Dear friends online, My name is Ashley Lisa And i live in USA, New York, I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2 years ago, which lead to our break up. I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Doctor Agu. I email the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happen, less than two days my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me i was so happy to have him back to me. The most interesting part of the story is that am pregnant. Thanks to Doctor Agu for saving my marriage and for also saving others own too. Continue your good work, If you are interested to contact the great spell caster email address: Agulovespell@hotmail.com You can also call him or text him here: +2348108737816.
