Association between soft drink intake and mortality in 10 European countries


A brand-new research study coordinated by scientists from the International Company for Research Study on Cancer (IARC) took a look at the association in between total, sugar-sweetened, and artificially sweetened soft drink consumption and subsequent overall and cause-specific death.

The research study included data from more than 450,000 individuals in the European Potential Examination into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohort, with an average follow-up duration of more than 16 years. Compared with participants who drank less than one glass of sugar-sweetened or synthetically sweetened soft drinks each month, participants who drank two or more glasses of these beverages daily had a greater threat of all-cause death.

In addition, usage of 2 or more glasses of synthetically sweetened soft drinks daily was found to be positively associated with deaths from circulatory illness, and consumption of one or more glasses of sugar-sweetened soft drinks per day was discovered to be positively associated with deaths from digestive illness.

The International Firm for Research Study on Cancer (IARC) becomes part of the World Health Organization. Its mission is to collaborate and perform research study on the reasons for human cancer and the mechanisms of carcinogenesis, and to establish scientific methods for cancer control. The Company is involved in both epidemiological and laboratory research and disseminates scientific information through publications, meetings, courses, and fellowships.
