Drinking Hot Tea Is Associated With Higher Cancer Risk For Smokers And Drinkers

Smoking and drinking alcohol is bad enough to affect your health it can cause many kinds of health problems that will affect your daily lifestyle.

To makes things worse people who are smoking and drinking alcohol increases their cancer risk of esophageal tumors when they drink scalding hot tea.

According to reuters.com "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."

The study found that people who drank at least one beer/cocktail/wine daily and also consumes scalding hot tea every day were 5 times more likely to develop esophageal cancer than those people who drank tea at any temperature less than once a week.

For people who smoke drinking burning hot tea daily was associated with roughly twice the risk of esophageal cancer as consuming tea less than weekly.

“Keeping away from both tobacco and excessive alcohol use is the most important means for esophageal cancer prevention,” said study co-author Dr. Jun Lv of Peking University Health Science Center in China.

“Under this increased risk of esophageal cancer from smoking and drinking alcohol, if people like drinking very hot tea, the risk of developing cancer will be synergistically higher,” Lv said by email.

Lv also said that "But by itself, drinking hot tea doesn’t increase cancer risk".

“Drinking tea at a lower temperature should not be considered as a replacement for smoking cessation and limiting alcohol intake,” Freedman said by email. “Nevertheless, accumulating data suggest that drinking very hot tea may also increase the risk of esophageal cancer, and it may be prudent for people who drink very hot beverages to wait until it cools down a bit before drinking, whether or not they also smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol.”
