Patient Comments: Liver Cancer - Causes

What do you think are the causes of your liver cancer?

Comment from: Marl, 35-44 Female (Caregiver) Published: May 01

My father passed away a month ago from primary liver cancer. He didn't have any of the provocative problems (no hepatitis, no cirrhosis). The only thing I can say he was consuming for years almost every day, was Coke (Coca Cola). A friend of ours much younger, 60 years of age, passed away a few years ago by the same disease. He had a nil previous history except that he was consuming in excess, about a liter or two of Coke every day.
