Association of Artificially Sweetened Beverage Consumption and Urinary Tract Cancers in the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study

Devout drinking of large amounts of sugar-sweetened beverages may raise a postmenopausal woman's chances of developing kidney cancer.

This study assessed if greater intake of artificially sweetened beverages is tied to the development of urinary tract cancers, such as kidney cancer, in women. A total of 93,676 postmenopausal women volunteered for this study and were evaluated for their sugary beverage consumption habits and the presence or absence of urinary tract cancer. 

Researchers identified a strong connection between preference for artificially sweetened beverages and rising odds of kidney cancer in postmenopausal women. This study came to the conclusion that "frequent consumption of artificially sweetened beverages may be associated with a higher risk of kidney cancer among postmenopausal women."
