[Breast Cancer] Popular Drink UPS Death Risk 85%!
Breast cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence.
In fact, there are MILLIONS of breast cancer survivors in the US alone.
But there are certain factors that can increase your chances of a long life… or increase your risk of a short one.
And researchers just identified one popular drink that can send your chances of dying through the roof.
Fortunately, it’s something you can change starting today.
I write a lot of articles about soda — and none of them are good.
Sugar-sweetened drinks like sodas have been linked to weight gain, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer.
But this is one of the first studies to look at the impact of drinking soda specifically in women who have had breast cancer.
And it’s not good.
Researchers looked food frequency questionnaires of 927 women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. They assessed how much soda the women drank in the 12-24 months prior to their diagnosis, and they followed them for an average of 19 years after diagnosis.
Here’s what they found:
Compared to women who never drank sodas, those who drank at least five sodas per week had a
- 62 percent higher risk of dying from any cause at all, and a
- 85 percent higher chance of dying from breast cancer.
That’s less than one soda per day!
Like I said, it’s NOT good.
Sodas have high sugar levels and zero nutritional value.
And because they have high amounts of sugar AND fructose, they have an extremely high glycemic load. This means they get absorbed into your bloodstream lightning-fast and send your blood sugar levels skyrocketing.
This causes your pancreas to release more insulin, and higher amounts of sugar and insulin contribute to conditions associated with increased breast cancer risk.
The bottom line is that soda is bad news for anyone — but it seems to be especially bad news for women who have breast cancer.
The time to dump that crud down the drain is today.
Instead, opt for water, green tea, and coffee (unsweetened).
Unlike soda, these drinks come with loads of health benefits… including a longer life.
