Hot tea consumption increases risk of cancer for drinkers and smokers

Hot tea consumption increases risk of cancer for drinkers and smokers”

However, the increasing data suggesting that hot tea may increase the risk of esophageal cancer should prompt smokers and drinkers to wait until their drink cools down before taking a sip.

The study comes against the backdrop of earlier research nine years ago that had hinted that hot tea may be an additional risk factor for esophageal cancer, a type of cancer that has poor survival rates worldwide and has always been linked to alcohol and smoking.

"[Our findings] suggest that abstaining from hot tea might be beneficial for preventing esophageal cancer in persons who drink alcohol excessively or smoke."

That was how Eddie Jones attempted to downplay England's chances of becoming the first team to win the Six Nations three years in a row.

A study involving almost 500,000 adults in China suggests that smokers and heavy drinkers who drink hot tea may have increased risk of developing esophageal cancer.

Now, before you get too anxious, the researchers readily admit that scalding tea doesn't seem to affect those who are not smokers or drinkers; there was no increased risk of esophageal cancer observed. In comparison to participants who consumed tea less than weekly and drank less than 15 g of alcohol per day, participants who consumed burning-hot tea and at least 15 g of alcohol per day had the highest esophageal cancer risk (hazard ratio [HR]: 5.00 [95% CI, 3.64 to 6.88]).

According to the study, participants who drank hot or burning hot tea and consumed an alcohol beverage every day had a 127 percent increased chance of developing esophageal cancer. It is usually caused by repeated injury to the esophagus due to smoke, alcohol, acid reflux and - maybe - hot liquids.

Last year, the United Nations experts said: "Weapons continue to flow into South Sudan from diverse sources, often with the coordination of neighboring countries".

"However, in the absence of both excessive alcohol consumption and smoking, daily tea drinking was not associated with oesophageal cancer risk, regardless of tea temperature".

Another limitation is that study participants reported on their own smoking and drinking habits, and their reports could be unreliable. As an observational study, it can't prove whether one factor causes another. They were under study for more than 9 years.

People were only asked about tea, alcohol and tobacco consumption at the start of the study. The independent link between near-boiling tea and esophageal tumors is not yet clear. For the people who find it hard to do so, avoiding burning-tea is the alternative solution.

For non-drinkers and non-smokers, the risk was less than 0.5 per 1,000 per year, regardless of how much tea they drank or how hot they drank it. Researchers say you might want to be careful about what else you do. It is also by far, the biggest consumer of tea in the world. It is better to give up on smoking/drinking.
