Scientists have little data about the causes of tumours in biliary tract and gallbladder, but there is the growing body of evidence that obesity and high blood sugar levels that are a hallmark of diabetes may increase the risk of these conditions.

"Soda consumption has been inconsistently associated with risk of biliary tract cancer (only one prior study) and other cancers in previous similar studies," Larsson said. The current study "is the first study to show a strong link between consumption of sweetened beverages, such as soda, and risk of biliary tract cancer," she added.
