The findings of the researchers are based on observations of 50,000 hot tea drinkers in different countries. They also advised the best way to enjoy your hot drink.

In a recent study, a team of scientists from Turkey has warned of the dangers of drinking hot tea.

For several years, scientists have observed a group of 50 thousand people from Turkey, China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan – countries with a tradition of drinking hot drinks.

According to the specialists, regular consumption of a drink with a temperature above 65 degrees increases the risk of developing esophageal cancer. 

In addition, drinking hot tea with cold water can provoke the appearance of ulcers in the esophagus and acute gastritis, which, in turn, contribute to the development of cancer.

Scientists stressed that mainly a genetic predisposition leads to the development of esophageal cancer, but hot tea can become a trigger for it to enter the active stage. Trigger factors also include smoking and drinking.

In 2019, experts from the American Cancer Society reported that daily hot tea increases the risk of esophageal cancer by 90 percent. To do this, it is enough to consume 700 milliliters of tea warmed up to 60 degrees per day.

The study was conducted over 10 years, more than 50 thousand people aged 40 to 75 years old took part in it. During the experiment, 317 new cases of esophageal cancer were identified.

According to scientists, the vast majority of them were people who were fond of drinking hot tea.

Experts recommend waiting for hot drinks to cool before drinking.

“Many people enjoy drinking tea, coffee, or other hot beverages. However, according to our report, drinking very hot tea can increase the risk of esophageal cancer, and it is therefore advisable to wait until hot beverages cool down before drinking,” said lead author Dr. Farhad Islami, of the American Cancer Society.
