   Soda May Make Cancers?

A USA reports that drinking soda linked to pancreatic caner as follows.
I usually say so the report and now I explain the reason of my thinking.

According to the USA report hereunder cited, the cause of cancer in linked
to the soda, But I think it is the element of sweet in the soda drink because
my experience send the signal to myself as so.

I don't know the details of artificial sweetening materials in sodas but I feel
their functions through my body. In short I can recognize the KIMI of the sodas.

Soft drinks are compsed of water, artificial sweeteners, articficial aromatic
materials and preservatives. So soda has two major KIMI, one is water KIMI,
cold and humidity, the other is artificial KIMI, making organs fatigue.
So in the view of KIMI theory, soda drink makes body humidity and damaged.
Coldness and humidity makes digestive organs who work little muscular
movement pathological change. The fatigue makes the liver, kidney, spleen and
pancrea damaged.

So long times of soda drinking may make pancreatic cancer or liver cancer.
This can not be new findings at all.

WebMD: Drinking Soda linked to Pancreatic Cancer  

Monday, 08 February 2010  
Drinking as little as two soft drinks a week appears to nearly double the risk of getting pancreatic cancer, according to a new study.

''People who drank two or more soft drinks a week had an 87% increased risk -- or nearly twice the risk -- of pancreatic cancer compared to individuals consuming no soft drinks," says study lead author Noel T. Mueller, MPH, a research associate at the Cancer Control Program at Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, D.C. The study is published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers& Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.

The beverage industry took strong exception to the study, calling it flawed and pointing to other research that has found no association between soda consumption and pancreatic cancer.

Cancer of the pancreas was diagnosed in about 42,000 people in the U.S. in 2009, according to American Cancer Society estimates, and about 35,240 deaths from the disease were expected. The pancreas lies behind the stomach. It makes hormones such as insulin to balance sugar in the blood and produces juices with enzymes to help break down fats and protein in foods.

Previous studies have produced mixed conclusions about whether consumption of soft drinks boosts the risk of pancreatic cancer.

So Mueller and his colleagues evaluated 60,524 men and women enrolled in the Singapore Chinese Health Study, begun in 1993, for up to 14 years, looking at their diet and whether they got cancer.

They asked all participants about food intake, including sodas and juices.  Mueller says the researchers didn't ask specifically about diet soda consumption, but that most of the soda drunk was regular or sweetened.

In Singapore at that time, Mueller says, there was very little intake of diet soda.

"We followed the participants for 14 plus years, keeping track of different cancers," he tells WebMD.

They found 140 cases of pancreatic cancer and looked back to see if there was an association with sodas or juices.

The researchers divided the consumption of sodas and juices into three categories: none, less than two servings a week, or two or more servings a week.

Those who drank two or more a week -- the average number was five -- had the 87% increased risk, Mueller tells WebMD.

No link was found  between juices and pancreatic cancer risk.

Why the link with sugary sodas? Mueller says they are not certain. "What we believe is the sugar in the soft drinks is increasing the insulin level in the body, which we think contributes to pancreatic cancer cell growth. That increase in insulin is what may be leading to the development of the cancer."

His team adjusted for other risk factors, such as advancing age, smoking, diabetes, and body mass index. The risk for pancreatic cancer rises with age.
