Soda consumption linked to prostate cancer

Men who drink a lot of soda run a higher risk of developing prostate cancer, according to a nutritional study conducted on 8,000 men in Malmö over 15 years time, the tabloid Aftonbladet reports.

Those who said at the start of the experiment that they drank soda often ran a 38 percent higher risk of developing prostate cancer compared to those who did not drink soda often.

Epidemiologist Isabel Drake, who published the study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, believes carbohydrates in soda are to blame, but sees no connection between prostate cancer and total intake of carbohydrates.
