Cases of colon and rectal cancer in young adults are increasing rapidly. According to researchers, this cancer is on the rise due to sugar drinks.


In a few years the rate of colorectal cancer in people under the age of 50 has increased rapidly. People born around 1990 have twice the risk of colon cancer and four times the risk of rectal cancer compared to those born around 1950.


Sales of sugar drinks have declined over the past few years, but consumption increased between 1977 and 2001. Due to which the number of calories consumed in young adults also increased rapidly.


Young adults began to consume twice as many calories

During those years, calorie consumption increased from 5.1 per cent to 12.3 per cent among 19- to 39-year-olds and from 4.8 per cent to 10.3 per cent among children under 18 years of age.


However, this figure has dropped since 2014, even though 7 percent of the calories consumed by every American still come from sugar drinks.


94,464 nurses involved in the study

A new study has been published in the medical journal Gut. The study involved 94,464 nurses to find out the relationship between colorectal cancer and sugar drinks. The nurses registered for a long-term prospective health study between 1991 and 2015, when they were 25 to 42 years old.


The study also looked closely at the health problems of 41,272 nurses who recorded their sugar drink intake between the ages of 13 and 18. The researchers also recorded the intake of fruit juices (apples, oranges, grapes, etc.) along with soft drinks, sports drinks, and a variety of sugar teas in the study.


People who drank two or more sugar drinks a week doubled their risk of cancer

After nearly 24 years of follow-up of the women involved in the study, researchers found 109 cases of colorectal cancer. Women who drank sugar two or more times a week had twice the risk of cancer compared to women who drank one sugar drink a week (a drink containing about 227 grams of sugar). The risk of cancer increases by 16 percent with each serving of a sweet drink.


One sugar drink a day means 32% risk of cancer

In the younger generation, one sugar drink a day increases the risk of cancer by up to 32 percent, but replacing it with coffee can reduce the risk of cancer by 17 to 36 percent.

Increased risk of cancer in the younger generation

Yin Cao, an assistant professor of surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and senior writer of the study, says that the younger generation is more likely than the elderly to have metabolic problems such as insulin resistance or high cholesterol, causing inflammation in the intestines.


Obesity can also be a major cause of this type of cancer. One study found that high fructose corn increased the risk of syphilis and subsequent cancer.
