Recent research found that just by drinking a glass of soda per day, men can increase the risk of prostate cancer by 40 percent.

The study, which was conducted over 15 years, found that men who drank 300 ml of soda every day are at risk of developing prostate cancer.

Previous research states that soda drinks can trigger heart attacks, diabetes, obesity, brittle bones, pancreatic cancer, muscle weakness, and paralysis.

In this study, the scientists looked at health data on more than 8,000 men aged between 45 to 73 years old. At the end of the study, researchers will compare their health records.

“We saw a 40 percent increased risk of prostate cancer in those who drink lots of soft drinks,” said Isabel Drake, researchers from Lund University, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Although genetic factors have a greater role in the development of prostate cancer, diet seems essential. In a previous study, it was mentioned that coffee consumption reduce the risks of prostate cancer.
