Soft Drinks Triggers to Pancreatic Cancer

A study revealed, people who often drink 2 bottles/cans per week or more carbonated soft drinks have a higher risk of pancreatic cancer. The incidence of pancreatic cancer is rare, but often are deadly. Talk about pancreatic cancer, I remember with my first patient when I worked as an internship student at the hospital. The patient came with pancreatic cancer, and We couldn’t safe him. I am so regret. But, I hope his soul be happy in the god’s home.

The relationship between soft drinks and pancreatic is because the sugar content in soft drinks. The sugar in soft drinks will increase insulin levels in the body, so insulin storm tend to trigger the pancreatic cancer. As we know that insulin is a hormone that plays an important role in the metabolism of the sugar that produced in the pancreas. Correlation is based on the fact that the tumor cells need more sugar for its growth in comparison to other cells.

As personally, if you want to consume the soft drinks, just do it! But, you must remember to restricted the amount of the soft drinks you should drink. To maintain the sugar balance is essential to our health. Be wise to choose your food and beverage. Choose the good and fresh one and stay health...
