Very hot drinks increase cancer risk

Very hot drinks may be linked to a 90% higher risk of getting cancer of the oesophagus, a large study suggests.

Drinking 700ml of tea at 60C (140F) or higher was "consistently associated" with the increased risk compared with people who had drinks at a lower temperature.

Previous studies have revealed a link between hot tea drinking and risk of esophageal cancer, but until now, no study has examined this association using prospectively and objectively measured tea drinking temperature. A new International Journal of Cancer study achieved this by following 50,045 individuals aged 40 to 75 years for a median of 10 years.

Naw, This is a repeat study. They did one on coffee drinkers and temps in Iran a few years back. Same results

I don't believe this will distract the hot tea drinkers or deflect any blame away from the Great Tobacco Conglomerates ...

The causes of inflammation can vary between people quite a bit which makes cancer such a tricky beast. But generally speaking you are right - avoid things that cause you inflammation and you will feel pretty good, most of the time. Things like white bread, pasta, white sugar, etc. are common causes

Well, I don't use sugar and don't eat bread or pasta and don't eat beef. Sugar is the worst. 

A matter of fact I contribute half of my health to my Japanese diet with Native spices. But I don't eat somen. Only rice.

Maybe that's what caused my cancer?

But 90% increase of less than 1% percentage isn't very much. It's nearly negligible,.

But if anyone is reading this, the main cause of esophageal cancer is a thing called Barrett's Esophagus, which is caused by acid reflux. If you have bad acid reflux go to the doctor. Don't do what I did and ignore it.

In the west we typically don't drink tea or coffee at that high of level.

It's a culturally thing in Iran to drink it hot.  And other places that I can't remember.
