#ItsNotJustSoda: A small glass of juice or soda a day is lin
There's more bad news for fans of sugary drinks such as soda and fruit juice.

A new study has linked drinking just a small glass of a sugary drink per day - 100 ml, about a third of a typical can of soda - to an 18% increase in overall cancer risk and a 22% increase in risk for breast cancer.

Tell me more?

Overall, 101 257 participants aged 18 and over from France were included. Consumptions of sugary drinks and artificially sweetened beverages were assessed by using repeated 24-hour dietary records, which were designed to register participants’ usual consumption for 3300 different food and beverage items.

Mathilde Touvier, lead author of the study which was published Wednesday in medical journal BMJ, said that the findings added to research showing that reducing how many sweetened beverages we drink would be beneficial for our health.

"What we observed was that the main driver of the association seems to be really the sugar contained in these sugary drinks," said Touvier, who is the research director of the Nutritional Epidemiology Research Team of the National Health and Medical Research Institute at the Paris 13 University.
