Pop Goes the Pancreas

As if we hadn't already guessed that soft drinks are lousy for your organs, a new study links soda drinking to pancreatic cancer, pretty much one of the worst cancers you can get. According to the University of Minnesota study, it's all about the sugar. Researchers followed 60,524 folks in Singapore over 14 years, and found that those who drank more than two sodas a day increased their risk for pancreatic cancer by 87%. Scientists not involved with the study warn that cigarette smoking may also have something to do with it (Singaporeans are big puffers). Considering what diet soda does to your kidneys, it's safe to say that sticking to less than two soft drinks a day is better for ya. {via US News and World Report}
