Sugary drinks link to early maturity for girls

Wednesday January 28th, 2015

Girls who drink a lot of sugary drinks are likely to start their periods early, researchers say today.

The effect is regardless of whether girls put on weight because of consuming the drinks, researchers say.

This may have implications for the risk of breast cancer in later life, say the researchers, led by Dr Karin Michels, of Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA.

Her team used information on 5,583 girls aged nine to 14 years between 1996 and 2001.

This showed that consuming more than one and half sugary drinks a day was linked to periods starting 2.7 months earlier, compared with drinking two or fewer sugary drinks a week.

Analysis suggests that this effect was not linked to body mass index, height, total food intake, or other factors such as physical activity. Full details of the study are published in the journal Human Reproduction.
