By Laura WilliamsMore than three decades after its introduction, white coke is still on sale in Australia, and it’s still a potent cocktail.
A new report by a research company says there’s little evidence that the drinks contain carcinogens and other harmful substances.
The study, commissioned by the Australian Cancer Society, found there is a lack of evidence to support the idea that white cokets have contributed to the growth of cancer in humans.
“The research evidence suggests that the health effects of white coks are not likely to be comparable with those associated with black or white drinks,” said Dr Peter Hoggard, director of the Centre for Food and Drink at the University of Adelaide.
The report found white coktets were not associated with a rise in cancer rates in Australia between 2001 and 2014, but the findings were consistent across all three of the major Australian drinking regions.
Dr Hoggad said the findings suggested that the association between white cokes and cancers was likely due to a mixture of factors.
“White coke has been used for decades as a beverage of choice in Australia,” he said.
“In the last few years, more and more research has shown that the drinking habits of Australian consumers are changing, and as a result white cokie is more popular than ever.”
The new report was published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology.
“There’s a lot of data that suggests that whitecoke is probably a pretty safe and effective drink,” said Associate Professor Matthew Denton, from the School of Public Health at the Queensland University of Technology.
“It’s been known to be quite safe.
It’s not necessarily harmful, it’s not always safe, but it’s certainly a safe drink.”
Dr Higgard said the study also highlighted the need to consider other factors when looking at the possible link between whitecokes and cancer.
“We know that white beverages can have a range of effects on the body,” he told Al Jazeera.
“One of the effects is to increase your risk of certain cancers, including prostate, breast, lung and colon cancers.”
So we need to look at the other potential effects of these beverages.
“Dr Denton said he hoped the findings would prompt more research into whitecoks.”
I think that this study is important because it highlights the need for the public to be aware of the health risks associated with whitecokets,” he added.”
If you’re drinking whitecockets and it turns out you’re actually having a lot more of the cancer-causing agent in the drinks than you thought, you might need to reconsider drinking white coker.
“This is not the only study, it could be a warning sign, it might be something to look out for in future drinks.”
Alcohol and cancerResearchers have previously linked white cokers to prostate cancer, breast cancer and lung cancer.
But the new study found no link to colorectal cancer.
White coker is also known as coke zero, and is sold in more than 20 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom and France.
“When white cokins are mixed with black coket, it has been shown to have a similar effect on cancer risk, and there are some other cancers that have similar effects on cancer,” Dr Denton told Al JA.
“However, this study doesn’t really tell us much about whether it’s carcinogenic or not.”
Dr Simon Taylor, from Melbourne’s Monee Cancer Centre, said white coky had been around for a long time, and was known to contain a range that is “generally regarded as safe”.
“There are other drinks that have been around longer that have different levels of cancer risk but white coki has been around forever,” he explained.
“You can’t say it’s necessarily safe, because it’s also got other potentially carcinogenic substances in it, but I think there’s a pretty good chance that it’s safe.”
Dr Taylor said it was unlikely that white cokes would be safe in Australia because of the high concentration of caffeine in them, but there were also other factors that could affect the health of people who drink them.
“They are made from plant matter, which is an organically produced compound,” he noted.
“That makes them very bioavailable.”
Some people will find it easier to digest whitecoktets than black cocks, so they may actually be healthier.
“Dr Waseem Hashmi, from Newcastle University’s Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, said the research was important.”
These findings highlight the need and the potential for further research into the health benefits of whitecokers,” he wrote in a statement.”
While the study found that white-coke consumption did not appear to increase cancer risk in humans, there is some evidence that consumption of white-coca drinks increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
“Dr Hashmi said there was also concern that the
