Cancer cocktail: hot tea plus twin sins

Among people who regularly smoked cigarettes and drank at least one drink per day, drinking hot tea was linked to a five-times higher risk of developing esophageal cancer, compared to those who didn't do any of those three habits. 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.

Over 456,000 participants between the ages of 30 and 79 took part in the study, at the start of which they had to fill out a questionnaire on their tea-making and drinking habits, including what temperature they drank it - room temperature, warm, hot, or burning hot.

On the other hand, the individuals who drank hot tea and consumed 15g or more of alcohol every day were five times more likely to suffer from the cancerous condition.

The musical lineup for the Adidas #747WarehouseSt NBA All-Star event has been announced and it's looking pretty good. It will begin with the skills challenge, move on to the three-point contest, and conclude with the dunk contest.

The authors concluded that those who drank tea less than once a week and consumed less than 15g of of alcohol on a daily basis were far less likely to experience oesophageal cancer.

However, tea aficionados do not have much reasons to worry as the researchers found that in the absence of both excessive alcohol consumption and smoking, daily tea drinking was not associated with esophageal cancer risk. In an accompanying editorial, the authors of the study quote the 1930's NY physician WL Watson: "The drinking of copious amount [s] of excessively hot tea is a history frequently obtained from Russian-born patients coming to Memorial Hospital suffering from cancer of the esophagus". According to the World Cancer Research Fund International, oesophageal cancer is the eighth most common cancer in the world, and there are over 1,400 cases of oesophageal cancer in Australia, each year. "Green tea has been shown to be a little more effective in cancer inhibition versus black tea, but black tea has been more effective in cardiovascular health". It is usually caused by repeated injury to the esophagus due to smoke, alcohol, acid reflux and - maybe - hot liquids.

"It's important to abstain from high-temperature tea in excessive alcohol consumers and smokers for esophageal cancer prevention", Lv said. If you only drink hot tea, don't worry.

His Michigan trial is now in its second day, and there are plenty more victims statements expected in the courtroom. Margraves was detained for a possible contempt of court proceeding, according to Eaton County Sheriff's Office.

It may be noted that China has a high number of oesophagal cancer patients. As an observational study, it can't prove whether one factor causes another.

500,000 subjects were observed during this study who lasted for more than 9 years.

The researchers' conclusion that people who smoke and drink excessively might want to cut out hot tea seems odd.

Based on the findings, the researchers offered some advice for people who smoke or drink large amounts of alcohol. It is better to give up on smoking/drinking.
