Researchers find esophageal cancer risk significantly high for those who drink hot tea

Researchers find esophageal cancer risk significantly high for those who drink hot tea

Those who reported drinking hot or burning hot tea daily and who also drank more than one alcoholic beverage every day had a 127 percent increased risk of esophageal cancer.

An estimated 15% of patients who develop the cancer are still alive after five years.

Each year, around 9,211 people are diagnosed with oesophageal cancer, which affects the food-pipe or gullet.

In the early stages it does not usually cause any symptoms when the tumour is small but when it grows symptoms begin to show.

"Drinking hot tea contributed to cancer only when it clustered with smoking and drinking alcohol excessively", Lv said. So, from now, smokers and drinkers have to drink their beloved cup of tea after being cooled.

Authorities ordered public transport halted and that students be kept inside schools, which are open on Saturdays. That has drawn sharp rebukes that Salvini is using the migrant crisis to foment xenophobia for political gain.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer defined scalding beverages as hotter than 65 °C and warned they were "probably carcinogenic to humans".

The study looked at more than 450,000 men and women in China aged 30-79, who were not known to have cancer at the beginning of the research. China is among the countries with the highest esophageal cancer incidence.

At the start of the study, none of the participants had cancer. They were asked to rate their tea consumption on a daily basis on how "hot" it was.

Compared with participants who drank tea less than weekly and consumed fewer than 15g of alcohol daily, those who drank burning-hot tea and 15g or more of alcohol daily had the greatest risk for esophageal cancer - a hazard ratio of five.

In November, she was reported missing by her mother in California, and is still now listed as missing on the attorney general's. Martinez's photo was featured in a North Coast Journal cover story about missing persons in California this week.

Dr. Lv said that the study found a link between hot tea and increased oesophagal cancer risk.

However, the absence of both excessive alcohol consumption and smoking, daily tea drinking was not associated with oesophageal cancer risk. "Green tea has been shown to be a little more effective in cancer inhibition versus black tea, but black tea has been more effective in cardiovascular health". However, further research studies are needed to confirm it.

The study is published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.

He said: 'Tea drinkers may be concerned about the implications of this study on their risk for cancer.

However, before panic ensues, experts say there is no reason to stop drinking the beverage as most people drink it below 65C or 149F temperature. During the study, 1,731 people developed esophageal tumors.
