    Sugary drinks

    People who drink lots of soda or other sugary beverages may have a higher risk of developing rare cancers in the gallbladder and bile ducts around the liver, a Swedish study suggests.

     

    Little is known about the causes of biliary tract and gallbladder tumors, but emerging evidence suggests obesity as well as elevated blood sugar levels that are a hallmark of diabetes may increase the risk of these malignancies.

    Because sodas and other sugary drinks have been linked to high blood sugar and weight gain, researchers wondered if these beverages might play a role in these types of cancer, said lead study author Susanna Larsson of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

    To explore this possibility, researchers analyzed survey data on the eating and drinking habits of more than 70,000 adults then followed them for more than 13 years on average to see whether cancers got diagnosed.

    Only about 150 people developed biliary tract or gallbladder cancers during the study period.

    Strokes are a potentially dangerous health threat, but a large majority of them are preventable.

    Each year, 800,000 people suffer from a stroke in the United States. But according to a new study, published in the journal The Lancet, 90 percent of these cases are preventable. An international team of researchers led by the Population Health Research Institute at McMaster University in Ontario examined people from every in continent in the world, and found a pattern emerged among stroke victims.

    “[The study] confirms... ten modifiable risk factors associated with 90 percent of stroke cases in all regions, young and older and in men and women,” said the study’s lead author Dr. Martin O’Donnell, a clinical professor at the Population Health Research Institute, in astatement. ”Hypertension is the most important modifiable risk factor in all regions, and the key target in reducing the burden of stroke globally."
