That's why researchers made a decision to evaluate this correlation with additional factors in mind, namely whether people who drink hot tea and develop oesophageal cancer also smoke cigarettes and drink an excessive amount of alcohol. However, the increasing data suggesting that hot tea may increase the risk of esophageal cancer should prompt smokers and drinkers to wait until their drink cools down before taking a sip.
A total of 456,155 persons aged 30 to 79 years old participated in the study.
Participants who drank very hot tea, smoked and consumed more than one alcoholic beverage a day raised their risk of esophageal cancer five five times. Smokers who drank hot tea (but not alcohol) daily had a double risk.
Hot tea consumption in combination with excessive smoking or alcohol use was associated with a higher risk for esophageal cancer.
But even those who don't touch or cigarettes appear to have a higher risk, researchers warned, but they stressed more tests are needed to assess how damaging it could be.
This is, however, not a breaking news because previous trials have already shown that the main causes of esophageal cancer are smoking and alcohol abuse. China is among the countries with the highest esophageal cancer incidence.
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.
Esophageal cancer is increasing in prevalence and has poor survival rates, particularly in less-developed regions and for men.
