Study: Drinking very hot tea almost doubles risk of cancer
WASHINGTON -- Many people start their day with a cup of tea. But those who drink it piping hot could be increasing their risk of esophageal cancer, according to a study. Researchers found that tea drinkers who liked their beverage to be warmer than 140 degrees and consumed more than 700 ml of tea per day -- about two large cups -- had a 90 percent higher risk of esophageal cancer, when compared to those who drank less tea and at cooler temperatures.
