    An new study from Sweden has been much in the news lately, linking the consumption of sugary drinks, juices as well as sodas, to biliary tract cancer (bile duct cancer/cholangiocarcinoma) and gallbladder cancer:

    “People who consume at least two juice drinks a day had more than twice the risk of developing gallbladder tumours and a 79 per cent higher risk of cancer in the liver bile ducts, according to a new study.”

    This has concerned many people, and so AMMF is very grateful to Dr Alison Backen of The Christie, Manchester, for preparing a summary of the publication for us, and for putting the findings in context. To read Dr Backen’s summary, go to:
