New research has revealed fruit juice may be as bad for you as fizzy drinks. A French study's found drinking large amounts of fruit juice may increase your risk of developing cancer. Sugary drinks like Coca-Cola, have already been linked to obesity which can lead to cancer, but researchers are suggesting there could be other reasons sugar triggers the disease.
