The World Health Organization is putting out a new warning that cancer cases are expected to increase 70 percent over the next 20 years.

The organization predicts new cancer cases will rise from an estimated 14 million in 2012 to 22 million a year.

Health leaders say both poor and wealthy nations will struggle with skyrocketing treatment costs.

New research shows sugar should be considered an independent risk factor for heart disease and many other chronic diseases.

The U.S. government has never issued a recommended dietary limit for added sugars, as it has with sodium.  But the American Heart Association recommends limiting sugar to less than 100 calories a day for women and 150 calories a day for men.
     
This study is focused on sugar found in candy, desserts and sweetened beverages.
     
Naturally occurring sugar, like in fruit, is okay.
