Periodically the morning news shows tout a study linking sugar with cancers. A new study has added to the discussion.

The study out of Sweden was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute and links the drinking of sugary drinks with an increased risk of gallbladder and biliary tract cancers. The study calls for additional research and stops short of saying the link is actual. What the study does show is that both obesity and Type 2 diabetes were found among the study participants.

Type 2 diabetes and excess body weight have long been linked with cancer and other serious health risks. The study does continue to add to the body of evidence showing the risk of obesity. If you are ready to take control of your weight we can help.
