Georgina Hill, health information officer at Cancer Research UK, said this study adds to existing evidence that having drinks hotter than 60 degrees may increase the risk of oesophageal cancer - but she said most people in the UK don't drink their tea at such high temperatures.
Drinking 700ml per day of tea at 60C or higher was "consistently associated" with raising the risk of the disease.
BEFORE you sip that cuppa, consider this - piping hot drinks could increase the risk of oesophageal cancer by 90 per cent, according to a study.
In the United States and Europe, tea is rarely consumed at temperatures above 65 degrees Celsius (149 degrees Fahrenheit) - but in places like Russia, Iran, Turkey and South America, it is common to drink tea that hot or even hotter.Читайте также: Hundreds of hotel guests were secretly filmed and live-streamed online
Very hot drinks may be linked to a 90% higher risk of oesophageal cancer, a study of 50,000 people suggests.
An expert at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine says consuming anything hot enough to cause esophageal injury will likely lead to an increased cancer risk factor for cancer. However, since the newest study does not have alcohol and tobacco in the equation, it's become far more concerning for most of us. The study was published Wednesday in the International Journal of Cancer. It is generally caused by repeated aggravation to the esophagus by smoke, alcohol, acid reflux and, apparently, heat.
The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be about 17,650 new cases of esophageal cancer this year - 13,750 in men and 3,900 in women - and 16,080 of those diagnosed will die from it.
Not an insubstantial risk but one that should be balanced against the pleasure that you personally derive from your daily ritual, the unknown but probably smaller gains that you would get from changing your habit now, and the fact that if you don't develop oesophageal cancer then something else will surely be along to fill that role sooner or later. "Sunburn gives us skin cancer, smoking gives us lung cancer, and many foods and drinks contribute to risk of gastrointestinal cancers", Doidge, who wasn't involved in the research, told the Science Media Centre.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
