One fizzy drink a day raises men's risk of prostate cancer by 40 per cent, says study.
A recent study by Swedish professors suggests that just one soft drink a day may increase the risk of developing more serious forms of the cancer such as prostate cancer by 40 per cent.
The researchers at the Lund University assessed health of more than 8,000 men aged 45 to 73 for 15 years. It was found that those who drank one 330 ml a day were highly likely to require treatment for a serious form of cancer. Moreover, researchers found that men who ate a diet of rice, pasta and sugary cereal were at increased risk of milder form of cancer.

The study has put light on why it is important to cut back on soft drinks.
