Sugar sweetened beverages have been associated with type 2 diabetes, obesity and other health problems. The reviewed research specifically investigated the relationship with sugar intake, sugar sweetened beverages and endometrial cancer(Inoue-Choi M, et al. 2013).
The participants were 23,039 postmenopausal women. From 1986 to 2010, 506 cases of estrogen dependent endometrial cancers were identified.
When compared with women who never drank sugar sweetened beverages, the cancer risk was 78 percent higher for the women in the highest quintile.
A higher risk for endometrial cancer was also found with higher sugar intake.
Sugar and sweets are seriously a major health hazard increasing the risk for many types of chronic conditions. You will reduce the risk for all of these health hazards by changing the habit of consuming sugar and sugar sweetened beverages.
