The relationship between sugar added to coffee and other hot beverages - as an indicator of taste for sugar and sugar intake outside main meals - and the risk of colorectal cancer was investigated using data from a case-control study conducted in Northern Italy on 953 cases of histologically confirmed colon cancer, 633 of rectal cancer and 2845 controls admitted to hospital for acute, non-neoplastic, non-digestive tract disorders.
Compared with subjects who reported adding no sugar to their beverages, the multivariate relative risks (RR) of colon cancer were 1.4 for those adding one spoonful of sugar, 1.6 for those adding 2 spoonsful, and 2.0 for those adding 3 or more.
The corresponding RRs for rectal cancer were 1.3, 1.5 and 1.4.
