Study says sugar possible linked to cancer !

Updated: Oct 14, 2019

In a recent study done and reported in the British Journal of Medicine showed a possible link with sugar intake and cancer. This study has many flaws in that it was not specifically done to see if sugar was a cause for cancer. What was done it they looked at several thousand people of time asking about diet. After a period of years they looked at the cancer rate.

The cancer rate appeared to be higher in people who consumed a lot of sugar so the researchers associated that with the cancer rate. The cancer rate could have been associated with any number of things people were eating or drinking or what kind of environment they were in. So, this is a study by association and not a scientific valid study.
