This is from one of the largest food diary panels - using 101,257 people in the French NutriNet-Santé cohort with 5 years of follow-up so far. While there was an association for some cancers, there was no significant association between amount of sugary drink intake and incidence of prostate cancer. There was no association whether the sugar was natural (in fruit juices) or whether it was added. Of course, this is association, not causation. And they measured only incidence, not survival. And while they tried to correct for measurable variables (e.g., sugar intake from other sources, sodium, lipid, fruit and vegetable intake, physical activity, family history, BMI, diabetes, CV disease, age, smoking, etc.), there are unmeasured variables (e.g., healthy lifestyle, food quality, etc.).
