A new study, published in the International Journal of Cancer, suggests that drinking hot tea is associated with a higher risk of developing esophageal cancer.drinking hot tea increases risk of cancer

The researchers analyzed data from over 50,000 people from the Golestan Cohort Study, a population-based prospective study, whose age was between 40 and 75 years at the beginning of the study.

The analysis showed that drinking 700 ml of very hot tea a day increased the risk of esophageal cancer by 90% in comparison with drinking the same amount with the same regularity of cold or warm tea.

The leader of the study Dr. Farhad Islami, the strategic director of Cancer Surveillance Research at the American Cancer Society, says: “It may thus be a reasonable public-health measure to extrapolate these results to all types of beverages, and to advise the public to wait for beverages to cool to [lower than] 60°C before consumption.”
