Liver cancer is the top 10 most commonly diagnosed cancers in the world.
According to Globocan statistics in 2020, liver cancer ranks 6th in the world in the number of new cases with more than 905,670 cases, ranking second in mortality with 830,180.
Drinking soda or other sweetened beverages daily increases the risk of liver cancer, as added sugars can cause insulin disorders, fat accumulation in the liver.
The results of the study were presented at the annual meeting of the American Dietetic Association in mid-June.
Researchers from a variety of organizations, including the Harvard looked at data from more than 90,500 postmenopausal women between the ages of 50 and 79, over nearly 19 years.
They found that women who drank at least one glass of soft drink a day had a 73% higher risk of liver cancer than women who drank at least three glasses of soft drinks per month.
