Hot tea links to oesophageal cancer

Throat cancer risk nearly doubles with hot drinks Drinking hot tea linked to higher cancer rates: study

According to a University of Texas at Tyler study from 2008, hot beverages such as tea, coffee and hot chocolate are commonly served at temperatures between 160 and 185 degrees Fahrenheit, while people reportedly tend to prefer these drinks at temperatures plus or minus 140 degrees.

Oesophagus is the food pipe that runs between the throat and the stomach.

- You might want to let that cup of tea cool down a bit. Participants were asked about their tea preferences and habits; those who drank 700 mL of tea a day (about three cups) and liked it very hot-140° F or more-had about a 90 percent increase in esophageal cancer risk.

Researchers studied more than 50,000 tea drinkers between the ages of 40 and 75 in the Iranian province Golestan for roughly 10 years.

Not for the first time, cancer experts in America have warned that people who drink their tea when it comes right out of the kettle put themselves at risk of contracting cancer.

The research also revealed that by 2019 there could be 13,750 of new cases of esophageal cancer in men and 3,900 in women.

Drinking hot tea linked to higher cancer rates: study

In the past, there have been multiple studies, pointing out the link between warm beverages and oesophageal cancer. Specifically, esophageal cancer is the eighth most common cancer in the world, according to data from the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Other contributing factors to esophageal cancer include smoking and alcohol consumption, says the clinic.

Ironically, radiotherapy for other cancers such breast cancer, lung cancer, or throat cancer, increases the risk of oesophageal cancer.

"It is probably anything hot: microwaved jam has been known to cause oesophageal injury", he said. "It is possible that the trauma leads to cell changes and hence to cancer", he said.

"Our results substantially strengthen the existing evidence supporting an association between hot beverage drinking and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma", said the report.

"This is definitely not a "scare" story when placed in the wider context, but avoidance of extremely hot drinks will have no adverse and possibly beneficial health effects", he said.
