”People who drank two or more soft drinks a week had an 87% increased risk — or nearly twice the risk — of pancreatic cancer compared to individuals consuming no soft drinks,” says study lead author Noel T. Mueller, MPH, a research associate at the Cancer Control Program at Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, D.C. The study is published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.

In a rebuttal argument for the safety of sodas, soda companies refute the study that soda is harmful. Such a sweet argument and yet, potentially dangerous if a person drinks sodas everyday.

Interestingly enough, soda companies in CA have decided to change ingredients in their drinks because of the study of harmful effects from soda.
