Next they'll be telling us "Death by Chocolate" cake's no good for us, too?

Who woulda thunk it? Sodas Raise Cancer Risk. Only in America would they need a study to find other health risks from drinking carbonated sugar water.

My favourite quote: "Several studies presented at a meeting of cancer and gastrointestinal experts in New Orleans showed that what people eat and drink could affect a range of cancers.". Ground-breaking stuff.

My next favourite quote: "But another study showed a potential benefit from drinking coffee and other caffeinated beverages."

My nextest favourite quote: '"These results warrant further study," said Dr. James Everhart, who helped lead the study. '

Well, he would say that, wouldn't he? That's a bit like a lottery-winner saying, "This warrants further spending."
