Not only triggers obesity, soda drinks also causes cancer

There have been many studies that associate drinking soft drinks with a higher risk of obesity. In addition to obesity, drinking soft drinks can also increase your risk of diabetes, leading to frequent fainting, and heart rate was stable. However, a study could increase the risk of cancer due to dye in it.

The study found that dye soft drinks containing a chemical called 4-Mel potential carcinogens and cause cancer. Regularly consume soft drinks can increase the risk of cancer, both in young children and in adults.

This result is obtained investigators from Consumer Reports and the Center for Livable Future at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. They conducted tests on 110 samples of soft drinks. All samples of soft drinks, except for the colored nodes, containing about 3.4 to 352.5 micrograms of 4-Mel on every can or bottle, as reported by Health Site 28/02).

The average person consume two to two and a half cans of soda per day. Researchers estimate that within the next 70 years, it could be there are about 5,000 cases of cancer due to the consumption of soft drinks.

But besides that, the researchers also warn that the 4-Mel is not only contained in soft drinks, but also on other packaged foods such as barbecue sauce, pancake syrup, and some kind of soup.

    First of all, obesity does not result from any one source of calories. Rather, science shows that this public health challenge derives from a complex interplay of environmental, social, economic and behavioral factors acting on a background of genetic susceptibility. Moreover, as obesity has increased over the past four decades, sugar-sweetened beverage consumption has continued to decline. In fact, government and independent third party data shows that calories in the American diet from added sugars in soda are down 39% since 2000.

    Second, caramel coloring is safe, as repeatedly verified by leading regulatory and public health organizations around the world. In fact, the FDA’s official statement on this is that they have “no reason to believe that 4-MEI, at the levels expected in food from the use of caramel colors, poses a health risk to consumers.” To expand on this point, the FDA previously determined that a person would have to drink more than 1,000 cans of soda a day for a lifetime to match the doses administered in studies that showed any negative effect on mice:

    The major takeaway? Pinning the blame on sugar-sweetened beverages for complex health issues is neither accurate nor productive. Education that places the emphasis on balancing overall diet with physical activity can help change behaviors in a substantive way though. Beverages, which come in an array of calorie counts and sizes, can certainly be a part of a sensible balance.
