Piping-hot drinks may up oesophageal cancer risk

Cancer risk: Splash of milk in your tea could cut chance of throat cancer

Hot beverage lovers may now have to think twice before sipping on a cuppa full of a burning coffee or tea, following a new scientific study on the impact of the habit.

Georgina Hill, a health information officer at Cancer Research UK commented on the study, saying: "This study adds to the evidence that having drinks hotter than 60°C may increase the risk of oesophageal (food pipe) cancer, but most people in the UK don't drink their tea at such high temperatures".

A new study suggests that drinking hot tea could increase the risk of esophageal cancer by up to 90%.

The researchers compared drinking less than 700ml of tea per day at less than 60°C with drinking 700ml per day or more at 60°C or higher. "However, according to our report, drinking very hot tea can increase the risk of esophageal cancer, and it is therefore advisable to wait until hot beverages cool down before drinking". This team believes that drinking hot beverages is among the main causes.

Cancer risk: Splash of milk in your tea could cut chance of throat cancer

However, the study was carried out on people living in Iran, where tea and coffee is drunk far hotter than in Britain.

If you add milk to your tea or let it cool down before you drink it, it's unlikely you'll be consuming it at these risky temperatures.

They drank almost 24 ounces of tea a day - about three tea cups - and preferred it to be 140 degrees Fahrenheit, said the study. Specifically, esophageal cancer is the eighth most common cancer in the world, according to data from the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

It's not clear why hot tea could be a risk factor in the development of esophageal cancer.

After following up on the participants, the researchers diagnosed 317 cases of esophageal cancer.

It is thought the heat may damage the esophagus, creating repeated injuries that lead to cancer in the same way smoke, alcohol, and acid reflux do.

Now, what is the exact correlation between hot drinks and this particular type of cancer?
