Regular soda consumption increases risk of non-Hodgkin lymphomas 1.7-fold in men

Men from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study who had a high consumption of regular sugar-sweetened soda were 1.66-times more likely to get non-Hodgkin lymphomas than men who did not consume regular soda according to a recent analysis.
Women consuming diet sodas did not show a significant increase.
(I have not seen a copy of the entire paper yet, so I don’t know what constitutes a “high consumption of regular sugar-sweetened soda”.)
