Sugar-sweetened and artificially sweetened beverages and risk of liver cancer, chronic liver disease mortality


Peer-Reviewed Publication

JAMA Network

About The Study: Among 98,000 postmenopausal women, compared with consuming three or fewer servings of sugar-sweetened beverages per month, those who consumed one or more sugar-sweetened beverages per day had a higher incidence of liver cancer and death from chronic liver disease. Future studies should confirm these findings and identify the biological pathways of these associations.
