The Swedish study – thanks to the JNCI

A recently published Swedish study reported a link between sugary drinks and increased risk of biliary tract and gallbladder cancer. This was a large study of 70,832 Swedish adults (who did not have cancer or diabetes) who were questioned about diet.

As the full report is a restricted access document, AMMF asked the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI) if they would be prepared to allow us to share the full study with our supporters.  We are very grateful to them for now allowing us access to this:
