A recent 14-year study found that drinking only two or more soft drinks a week increased the risk of pancreatic cancer by 87%. When compared to fruit juice, the study found “no statistically significant association between juice consumption and risk of pancreatic cancer.”

Perhaps there should be a warning label on the stuff.

    WOW – why didn’t we hear about this on the news? And especially after Patrick Swayze died from pancreatic cancer. Seems like there should be more public awareness on this issue.
