Hot tea could lead to cancer among heavy drinkers, smokers

Drinking scalding hot tea is associated with an increased risk of esophageal tumors in people who also smoke and drink alcohol, two habits that already make many cancers more likely, a Chinese study suggests.

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

For the current study, researchers examined data on 456,155 adults ages 30 to 79 who completed questionnaires about their smoking, alcohol and tea habits.

Interior CS Fred Matiang'i later claimed the coalition had planned a massacre and that some media houses were aware. Two opposition figures, who took prominent roles in the "swearing-in" ceremony have also been arrested.

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.

If you're a tea aficionado, it's probably a good idea to let that steaming cup cool off, especially if you smoke cigarettes or have more than a single alcoholic drink a day.

The people who had their tea at hot temperatures while smoking and having alcohol as well had a fivefold increase in their chances of developing esophageal cancer in comparison with other participants who did not do so.

If you're a frequent smoker or drinker you may want to think twice about consuming hot tea, in order to decrease your risk of developing esophageal cancer, a new study discovered. Then researchers followed the people in the study for about nine years to see how many developed esophageal cancer. It is usually caused by repeated injury to the esophagus due to smoke, alcohol, acid reflux and - maybe - hot liquids.

Tobacco and alcohol are known risk factors for cancer of the esophagus - the tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach.

This study shows that drinking very hot tea every day might exacerbate the risks posed by alcohol and tobacco, perhaps by damaging the skin cells so the throat has less protection against the harms they cause. They were under study for more than 9 years. They can abstain from drinking hot tea to prevent esophageal cancer or quit smoking and excessive alcohol use. China is among the countries with the highest rates of esophageal cancer. People who only drank hot tea did not see a significant increase in cancer risk. But this was only for people who also smoked or drank alcohol. Drinking tea is unlikely to be the biggest of their health problems.
