HIdden Danger in Iced Coffees

Iced coffees are a favorite summer treat, but when the mercury rises it's best to think twice about what you're about to order. A new report by the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has found one iced coffee drink sold at Starbucks contains more than a quarter of the estimated daily calorie requirement for an average woman.

WCRF warns that regularly consuming high calorie drinks like these could increase cancer risk. Scientists now say that, after not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight is the most important thing you can do to help prevent cancer.

As their website states, a Starbucks Venti Mocha Frappuccino blended coffee with whipped cream is 500 calories.

For cancer prevention, water is always the best choice of drink, but unsweetened tea and coffee made without cream are also preferred to sugary drinks.
