Hot tea, combined with heavy smoking and alcohol use, increases cancer risk

If you smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol daily, you may want to consider letting your tea cool before you enjoy it. Drinking tea while it's too hot could increase your risk of esophageal cancer, a new study suggests.

Dr. Yu and Dr. Tang wrote in their introduction that China is among the countries with the highest incidence of esophageal cancer and that "tea drinkers, especially Chinese men, are more likely to smoke and to drink alcohol".

Researchers are now set to investigate whether drinking tea at high temperatures also increases the risk of oesophageal cancer.

The new tea warning emerged from China, where researchers followed the progress of 456,155 participants aged 30 to 79 for around nine years.

So tea drinkers who don't smoke or drink alcohol excessively probably don't need to switch to a different beverage anytime soon, according to Lv.

Participants who drank tea on a weekly basis were asked to describe its temperature as "warm", "hot" "or "burning hot".

According to the research, tea drinkers who had more than one daily alcoholic drink (glass of wine, 12 ounce beer or 1.5 ounce of liquor) have a 12 percent more chance of getting cancer.

In 2016, the World Health Organization reported that hot drinks might be a cause of esophageal cancer because the repeated ingestion of hot drinks such as tea or coffee can cause irritation of the esophagus mucosa and, consequently, inflammation of the esophagus, which can cause the development of abnormal cells that can promote esophageal cancer. "Most people drink their tea and coffee at a temperature that seems unlikely to cause cancer".

While the connection between hot drinks and cancer has been investigated in the past, results were never entirely conclusive. Oesophageal cancer is one of the leading causes of death in China; almost 208 473 patients died of oesophageal cancer in 2010.

The study entitled [the] "Effect of Hot Tea Consumption and Its Interactions With Alcohol and Tobacco Use on the Risk for Esophageal Cancer". The review looked at all types of hot beverages, including coffee and tea. The team monitored their habits of smoking and drinking tea and alcohol.

NECKING a scalding cuppa raises the risk of throat cancer up to five times.

The researchers collected information about tobacco and alcohol consumption at the beginning of the study.

In an editorial Dr Farin Kamangar of the Morgan State University and Dr Neal Freedman of the National Cancer Institute, both in Maryland. said the idea that hot drinks may cause the cancer dates to the 1930s.
